According to reports by The Mirror on April 21, West Ham United are one of six clubs interested in signing Manchester United contract rebel Marouane Fellaini this summer, and Irons fans have been quick to have their say on the rumour.
The Mirror says that the Belgium international, who has been capped 80 times by his country, has told the Red Devils of his intentions to leave when his deal expires at the end of the season as he looks for one final big pay day in his career, despite the fact that Jose Mourinho wants him to stay.
Hammers boss David Moyes will already be targeting new players despite the fact that his team aren’t safe from relegation yet, and he certainly knows the 30-year-old well having signed him and managed him during his time in charge at Everton and then United.
West Ham supporters, who have also urged the club to sign the controversial Mario Balotelli this summer, took to social media to give their thoughts on the story, and while one said “surprise, surprise”, someone else labelled him as “another Moyes reject”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Oh god, probably the most disliked player I've ever seen
