West Ham fans disappointed with Nordtveit departure

West Ham United announced on Tuesday afternoon that they had sold Norway international Havard Nordtveit to Hoffenheim after just one season at the London Stadium.

The 26-year-old joined West Ham on a five-year contract from Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach in the summer of 2016, but a disappointing first season in English football saw the midfielder only start 11 Premier League matches.

It would be fair to say that Nordtveit did not exactly light up the London Stadium last season, but West Ham supporters took to Twitter to reveal their disappointment with the move.

Despite arriving as a midfielder, the Norwegian only started five matches in his preferred position, and looked untidy when asked to play on the right side of defence.

Supporters of the London club are upset that Nordtveit – a 31-time Norway international – was not given a run in his preferred central midfield position, and many have questioned the club’s decision to part with the former Arsenal youngster after just 12 months.
