West Ham’s final four games could decide Adrian’s future

As reported by The Sun, West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian will look to force an exit from the club this summer if they appoint David Moyes as manager on a permanent basis.

What’s the story?

David Moyes’ current deal at the London Stadium expires at the end of the season, with a decision on his future not to be made until after their Premier League campaign ends.

Adrian has found himself below Joe Hart in the pecking order at the club despite some high profile errors and The Sun report he is growing disillusioned with life under the management of Moyes.

The paper say it could mean he attempts to force a move away from the club when the transfer window opens, despite having a year left on his current deal.

With an opportunity to feature against Manchester City on Sunday, can Adrian win his way back into the first team?

Should Adrian be number one?

The 6ft 3in shot-stopper has probably shown enough in his Hammers career to be considered ahead of Joe Hart right now, especially as the latter has made mistakes against the likes of Burnley and Stoke City recently.

That Adrian only gets into the team because Hart can’t face his parent club Man City is unfortunate, but he can perhaps use the match against Pep Guardiola’s outfit to prove he has a future at the London Stadium.

The Irons will likely be under significant attacking pressure, potentially giving Adrian a big chance to show of his goalkeeping skills.

If he impresses, he could use the three remaining games to demonstrate he should be the trusted number one at the club and save his Hammers future.
