West Ham in discussions to cancel underprivileged veteran’s contract

West Ham to consider terminating the contract of an underprivileged defender

West Ham to cancel decade-long servant contract

After an unexpected season in 2020-21 that saw West Ham claim one of the European venues, the Hammers strengthened their squad once again this summer when they brought five signings to London Stadium, including former Fulham standout Alphonse Areola (loan ), Kurt Zouma. , Nikola Vlašić, Alex Kral (loan) and Craig Dawson.

But with the improvement has come the need to eliminate the salaries of those who are considered to be in excess of the requirements, and one of those players that the club has tried to part with is central defender Winson Reid.

Reid, now 33, has been with West Ham since moving from Danish team FC Midtjylland in the summer of 2010. The New Zealand international was a key asset to the club from 2011 to early 2018 before a serious knee injury in March 2018. ended his club career.

His well-established history of injury problems has seen him miss more than 130 games due to time on the treatment table dating back to the 2013-14 season, and with his salary at the top end of the squad list at a £ . 70,000 a week, David Moyes and the club bosses have seen fit to explore the drastic measure of completely canceling his contract at the club after a move didn’t materialize this summer.

Could Reid play a tertiary role with 2 years remaining on his contract?

Success comes with greater considerations, and West Ham facing a continental campaign this season is both a blessing and a curse. It’s nice to see more money in the coffers and raise the club’s profile closer to a position that hasn’t been seen in a long time, but increased match volume will certainly add the potential for too many minutes in matches in certain areas.

West Ham already has the only true center forward in Michail Antonio and, at the moment, five centers on the books; reducing that to four with the elimination of Reid’s contract would leave David Moyes with only four available.

Any potential injury crisis in that area could have a similar effect to the one Liverpool tackled last season, and although they have not played for the club in two seasons (despite loans from both Brentford and Sporting KC of the MLS), Reid could at least offer a fifth-choice player who, for this season at least, could offer the needed depth in an area the club would lack if they let him.

Cutting the payroll in the wake of another summer of spending would certainly be prudent, but it may be worth taking the financial hit if it guarantees a greater measure of success on the court this season for West Ham.
