Lots of West Ham United fans on Twitter have been discussing the club’s possible new kit supplier after an update on Twitter from insider source ExWHUemployee.
It’s true that they have met with the kit supplier I never mentioned nike or anyone as a “new” supplier in fact I said I believed it wasn’t Nike https://t.co/Df28RWjXjU

The prominent figure amongst the Hammers section of the social media platform revealed on Thursday evening that the Irons have held a meeting with a new kit supplier, though it isn’t Nike.
Some supporters were angry about this, claiming that Umbro would probably be extending their contract which runs out at the end of next season and showing their disdain – “buffoons.”
The sports company took over from Adidas in the summer of 2015 and has been the kit supplier since the final campaign at the Boleyn Ground.
Other fans suggested different kit-makers with one musing that it could be out of “PONY and BUKTA” in reference to some of the East London outfit’s previous classic strips, whilst Under Armour, New Balance and Joma were other names mentioned.
Check out the pick of the reactive Tweets from members of the Claret & Blue Army to the news, below…

That sounds like Umbro could be extended. The people that deal with the contracts are buffoons. Prob Karen Brady. Ex does the deal just simply come down to who offers the most? I’m sure we all want to see Nike or Adidas but do club select highest bidder ?
