Robert Snodgrass has been in demand by plenty of Premier League clubs in the January transfer window, but it appears that proceedings are reaching a conclusion.
The Hull City midfielder is widely expected to join West Ham United this week after his manager Marco Silva told BBC Sport that a deal has been struck between the two clubs.
The Portuguese coach also revealed following his side’s EFL Cup exit to Manchester United on Thursday night that Snodgrass has told the club that he wants to leave.
Silva is quoted as saying: “He has not trained since they did a deal with West Ham. It is possible it will be done in the next hours.”
Burnley and Middlesbrough were also hunting for his signature, but it appears that the Scotland international has opted for East London.
BBC Sport claims that Burnley had an offer in the region of £10m accepted by Hull, but West Ham came in with a higher bid.
Plenty of supporters are excited about Snodgrass joining the Hammers, while others are not quite convinced.

If Snodgrass rumours are true then it's a solid signing. Don't get why people are moaning. He's a worker and has a lot of talent. #whufc

Can't wait for Snodgrass to prove a lot of West Ham fans wrong. Think he's going to prove a really decent bit of business. #whufc

Can't see Snodgrass at West Ham. Doesn't seem a Slav type of player and for me is more of the same. #whufc

I'll be pleased if we get Snodgrass to be honest. More than capable winger who's proven in the prem. Will definitely strengthen us #whufc

Would rather we did not sign Snodgrass. Overpriced and racing towards 30. #whufc
