West Ham United fans love the fact that Marko Arnautovic has left the club.

The Hammers confirmed on Monday that the Austria international has completed a move to Shanghai SIPG after again requesting to depart the London Stadium.

Football FanCast understands that he first asked for an offer to be accepted last week after Shanghai tabled a bid worth £19.7m.

The Hammers rejected that offer but opted to accept a second worth £22.5m over the weekend, with manager Manuel Pellegrini telling the club to sanction the sale, per FFC sources.

Indeed, FFC was told that the club were well aware of how poor the finances within the deal were – the Hammers rejected an offer worth £30m for Arnautovic in January – but that they were willing to take a hit in order to shift him off the wage bill.

And fans have applauded the club for taking such a stance, insisting that they did not want to keep such a disruptive influence in east London.
