The Summer 2020 Transfer Window Now Closed: Zungu signs on loan with option to buy

Recommended Posts

According to a report fro TEAMtalk, West Ham want to sign Rangers right-back James Tavernier before next month’s transfer deadline.



The Hammers entered the summer transfer window in desperate need of a new right-back.


Ryan Fredericks impressed during West Ham’s first two Premier League games, however. But the 27-year-old suffered a hamstring tear against Wolves on Sunday night.


And now we really do look weak in the right-back position.


TEAMtalk claims that Hammers boss David Moyes is keen to bring Rangers skipper James Tavernier to the London Stadium from Ibrox.

Gers boss Steven Gerrard will surely not want to lose the 28-year-old, however. In fact, the former Liverpool skipper will fight to keep him in Glasgow.


Tavernier has racked up four goals and three assists in nine Scottish Premiership games for Rangers so far this season. In those outings, he has averaged 2.4 tackles, 1.1 interceptions, 1.1 clearances and 0.8 dribbles per game (Who Scored).

The former Newcastle ace is a solid defender, but he is very good when bombing forward down the right hand flank as well.


Tavernier has just two years remaining on his current deal at Ibrox. So now will probably be the best chance Rangers have of bringing in a substantial fee for the right-back, unless they extend his contract of course.

The Hammers may have to make a fairly large offer in order to tempt Rangers boss Steven Gerrard into selling.

And if we do that, the 28-year-old would be a very solid addition for West Ham. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that we manage to get this one over the line.

He isn’t good enough for where we need to be.


Good squad player, one of us, and wish him well at Hearts.

Yes i agree entirely, my point was about the actual picture of Rangers supporting Andy Halliday wearing a Hearts shirt, which he doesn't even look particularly comfortable in.

Would Tavernier actually leave? I get the feeling he's been here so long that he's a Rangers man now. 


Saying that, if it were to be a substantial fee, we'd have to look at it. 


We do have young Patterson to replace him.

"This summer we have recruited Tony Weston from Blackpool, who was much sought-after in the EPL having made his Blackpool debut in the FA Cup at only 16; we have recruited James Graham from Ross County who has been involved with the national team and, like Charlie Lindsay who joined us from Glentoran, had many options.

“The combined spend to recruit these three exciting talents was less than the fee we will receive from Manchester City which is significantly greater than mandatory compensation figures.



I thought this was Dapo initially, which worried me: Dapo has been around the first-team squad without ever looking like he'll make the jump.


However, it's his younger brother Dire.


The above quote is pleasing.
