Another Hammer could make surprise summer exit

Hammer Tomas Soucek could be sold this summer with just one year remaining on his existing contract, plus a twelve-month club option.

The 28-year-old representatives have been unable to agree terms for a new contract, with both sides not seeing eye to eye, which could see the player sold if the club’s valuation is met.

Agent Pavel Paska, who represents Soucek, has been unable to agree on a wage structure for his client, insisting his client deserves a significant pay rise to match other high earners in the West Ham squad.

Soucek is reported to earn up to £80,000 per week, but early contract discussions last year bought claims his representatives want a six-figure weekly wage with a figure of £120,000 per week reported by some outlets.

Soucek was touted around the Premier League last summer, but there were no offers despite initial exploratory talks with Manchester United.

With a drop in form last season it would be interesting to understand what transfer fee he could demand and whether he could achieve a six-figure weekly wage package that his agent wants.

There is a real danger that he will price himself out of the market and just run down his contract at West Ham.
