NUFC star ‘could be tempted’ by summer move to West Ham – laughable claims

West Ham are planning a £15 move to sign Newcastle United skipper Jamaal Lascelles this summer according to a laughable story in the Sun today – a move that we just cannot see happening for any number of reasons.

The story states that Lascelles is one of their ‘main targets’, with the Hammers ready make some big signings this summer in a bid to ease the mass frustration at the London Stadium.

They claim that the the 24-year-old ‘could be tempted’ by a ‘bigger deal’ at West Ham – stating the defender’s agent is also ‘close to the hammers camp’ – but we’re having none of it.

Not only is it the Sun, the fee and potential destination suggested  just seem nonsensical for one of our best players and one of the most promising young centre-backs in England this season.

Would he swap a packed out, passionate St James’ Park for a toxic London Stadium? Would he swap Rafa Benitez for David Moyes? Would he be sold for just £15m? Would he leave for West Ham when there’s bound to be bigger clubs interested?  The answer to all the above is an emphatic no.
