The Celta Vigo striker has been a target of the Irons for some time and Football FanCast sources understand that manager Manuel Pellegrini specifically requested the signing of the Uruguay international.
Director of Football Mario Husillos attempted to do a deal but there was a nagging feeling, per those sources, that Gomez wished to remain in Spain.
That has now seemingly been confirmed, with Sky Sports claiming that he will complete a switch to Valencia in the coming days instead of making the move to east London.

What a joke we are…. all this time wasted! We knew the fee and the terms… I know u can negotiate but surely not this long to realise what they will only accept. Oh well… welcome Sturridge

I can see Pellegrini will leave West Ham as he wants ambition. Sullivan is to blame
