According to reports from the Daily Record, Newcastle United are planning a swoop for West Ham United flop Robert Snodgrass.
West Ham United were handed a huge blow following the controversial departure of Dimitri Payet during the January transfer window and in order to replace the mercurial Frenchman, the Hammers hastily signed Robert Snodgrass from Hull City.
While Snodgrass was never going to be able to completely fill in the void left by Payet, it was expected that the Scottish international would prove to be a decent option for Slaven Bilic as he had enjoyed a terrific first half to the season at Hull.
As it turned out though, Snodgrass failed to make any positive impact whatsoever at the London Stadium and after finishing the campaign for the Hammers with no goals in 15 appearances, the attacker now looks set for a swift exit this summer.
Despite his struggles at West Ham though, Snodgrass still remains a good player and a number of teams, including Newcastle United are now said to be keen on acquiring the services of the former Leeds United star.
It is clear to see that Newcastle’s attacking lineup is lacking firepower at the moment and the Magpies could sign Snodgrass on a cut price deal, with West Ham having already told the 29-year-old set piece expert that he is free to leave (Daily Record).
