West Ham fans gutted after latest Gomez twist

West Ham United fans have been left gutted after Sky Sports reported that Maxi Gomez would not be joining the Hammers.

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.

The news comes as a significant blow after reports also claimed that Salomon Rondon, who was the subject of a bid from the Irons earlier this summer, would likely be moving to China.

Add to that the fact that Aleksandar Mitrovic, a target at the beginning of the transfer window, has signed a new contract at Fulham and it all adds up to a rather beleaguered picture for Irons fans.

They have been left with just Javier Hernandez and Jordan Hugill as their striking options ahead of the 2019/20 season.

And fans have been quick to vent their displeasure on Twitter after Sky’s latest update, with many aiming their fury towards co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan.
