Joe Hart to West Ham: Loan move on hold until fee agreed with Manchester City

WEST HAM will need to reach a compromise with Manchester City to complete the loan signing of England goalkeeper Joe Hart.

By Neil Fissler

Hart has had a medical with the Hammers ahead of a move which will see him spend the season at the London Stadium with a view to a permanent deal.

West Ham have agreed to pay 90 per cent of his £130,000-a- week wages but have yet to agree a loan fee.

City, who are keen to offload Hart, want £5m while West Ham are holding out for around £2m.

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic is also weighing up a third offer of around £25m for Stoke City’s Marko Arnautovic after having bids of £15m and £20m turned down.

The Croatian could, however, move onto other targets if Stoke continue to dig their heals in.

One of the names on his wanted list is Dusan Tadic, but Southampton could refuse to sell to a Premier League rival.

Austrian winger has set his sights on playing in the bright lights of London

By Joe Bernstein

Stoke City have set an asking price of £22.5million for West Ham target Marko Arnautovic in order to try and sign three new players including Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma.

Stoke rejected a second West Ham offer of £20million last week because 10% of the fee would have gone out on additional payments like agents fees and bonuses.

They want to clear £20million before agreeing to a deal, particularly as manager Mark Hughes built Stoke's team around Arnautovic last season and is reluctant to see the Austrian winger leave.

However, the manager may be given little choice with the tempramental Arnautovic having set his sights on playing in the bright lights of London despite signing a new four-year contract at Stoke last summer.

Due to the potential of left-sided youngster Ramadan Sobhi, Stoke are likely to spend any Arnautovc windfall on other positions, particularly two centre-halves and a midfielder.

Zouma is a £12million target from Chelsea and Stoke are also confident that centre-half Bruno Martins Indi wants to join them on a permanent basis despite interest from Crystal Palace.

The Dutch international enjoyed his loan spell in the Potteries last season and has bought a new house in anticipation of continuing but Stoke have not finalised a transfer fee with his parent club Porto.

Euro giants strike €5m deal for West Ham star but are yet to agree personal terms

Euro giants strike €5m deal for West Ham star but are yet to agree personal terms

West Ham United midfielder Sofiane Feghouli has turned down a move to the Turkish Super League.

The Turkish outlet Futbol Arena claim that Galatasaray have held contract talks with the Algeria international.

The report goes onto state that Feghouli rejected a €2.8m per year offer from the Turkish giants.

Galatasaray have already struck a €5 million deal with West Ham for Feghouli. Per the source, the Lions have not given up hope of signing the former Valencia man. Further contract talks will be held at a later date.

Feghouli made the move to West Ham on a free transfer from Valencia last year. The 27-year-old scored four goals and provided three assists in 27 appearances for the Hammers last season.

The flamboyant winger has 44 international caps for Algeria, scoring 11 times. Feghouli is currently at West Ham’s Austrian pre-season training camp.

Galatasaray are keen to strengthen their squad ahead of the upcomming season. The Lions finished last term in fourth spot.

Re: Sunday newspapers (includes West Ham)
I like Marko Arnautovic, he's a decent player, strong, good touch and a good finisher in the box. Throw in that he's "done it" in the Premier League and is settled happily enough (as far as one can tell) in England and (in the current nuts market) that's £22.5m worth.

Or we can hold out for some "20 goal" marquee signing that doesn't come off and end up trying to get Enner Valencia back from Mexico or whatever.

For the sake of £2.5m we walk away from a deal that will improve our first team by some way? Don't be a fool.
