London Stadium miss out on extra payments

London Stadium operators and owners have missed out on any performance related bonuses due by West Ham under their 99-year agreement for the stadium after a disappointing season on the pitch.

It means West Ham’s rent was fixed at the One-Off usage fee of £2.5m after we finished 11th in the Premier League and failed to qualify for Europe or win the FA Cup.

Agreed bonus payments in the London Stadium agreement.

£25,000 for any Event Year in which the Club finishes in the l0th League Position or above

£40,000 for any Event Year in which the Club finishes in the 9th League Position or above

£55,000 for any Event Year in which the Club finishes in the 8th League Position or above

£70,000 for any Event Year in which the Club finishes in the 7th League Position or above

£85,000 for any Event Year in which the Club finishes in the 6th League Position or above

£100,000 for any Event Year in which the Club finishes in the 5th League Position or above

£100,000 for any Event Year in which the Club finishes in the 4th League Position or above

£100,000 for any Event Year in which the Club finishes in the 3rd League Position or above

£100,000 for any Event Year in which the Club finishes in the 2nd League Position or above

£100,000 for any Event Year in which the Club finishes in the 1st League Position

The League position bonus has an accumulative effect so winning the Premier League would mean a bonus payment of £775,000

£100,000 for any Event Year in which the Club wins the FA Cup

£100,000 for any Event Year in which the Club wins the Europa League

£100,000 for any Event Year in which the Club qualifies to participate in the Europa League in the following Event Year

£250,000 for any Event Year in which the Club qualifies to participate in the Champions League Group Stages in the following Event Year

£1,000,000 for any Event Year in which the Club wins the Champions League,

Man City Tell Iheanacho He's Surplus To Requirements, West Ham In Talks

The future of Africa's Most Promising Talent, Kelechi Iheanacho is not at Manchester City, with manager Pep Guardiola informing the Nigeria international he's surplus to requirements ahead of pre-season training.

Despite being linked with a move to a couple of big teams abroad like Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund, West Ham are the early frontrunners to secure the striker's signature, having opened talks with his intermediary.

''Kelechi did not travel to Manchester during the Super Eagles training camp to hand in a transfer request, already he has been told he is not in Guardiola's plans for next season,'' a top source close to Iheanacho told allnigeriasoccer.com.

''City are still studying all offers but will only accept a deal from any club that agrees with their buy-back clause.

''His agents are in talks with West Ham to come to some sort of a deal.''

It was a difficult season for Iheanacho, with the Nigerian making only five Premier League starts, whereas he played seven games from the beginning in his first full season as a Manchester City player.

West Ham make firm bid for highly-rated South American star who 'dreams' of moving to Europe - report

The 24-year-old winger currently plays for Mexican side Tigres

By Charles Watts

Details have emerged of West Ham’s move for Mexico international Jurgen Damm.

The 24-year-old winger currently plays for Mexican side Tigres and is currently on international duty with his national team.

And it was during the 3-1 win against the Republic if Ireland on Friday morning that the Hammers' interest in the winger became public knowledge.

Mexican TV reporter Juan Carlos Cruz claimed live on air that West Ham had made a £4 million move for the attacker and were waiting for a response to their offer.

Damm, who has spent the past two years at Tigres having joined from Pachuca in 2015, has previously expressed his desire to move to Europe.

He said: “My biggest dream is to be able to play a World Cup and in a European club with Champions League, so I trust in God that someday I will be able to fulfil my dream.

“I think I am at a good age, and with my German passport it is easier. I leave everything in God’s hands.”

Well, this payment thing explains a lot about the poor performances last season and transfer windows in summer and winter.

THE OWNERS WILL DO ANYTHING TO AVOID SPENDING ANY MONEY. THEY WILL WANT US TO FINISH 11TH EVERY SEASON.

I love the fact that we have a bonus in place for winning the Champions League. A tad optimistic.


Thanks Alan.
