According to Knees Up Mother Brown, West Ham look set to decide against pursuing a deal further for Bristol City defender Aden Flint.
The report alleges that the Hammers sounded out the 28-year-old and his availability to sign from the Robins, to which the West Country side responded with a figure of £9 million.
The towering centre-half is one of the better defenders outside the Premier League at the moment and enjoyed a fine campaign last season as Lee Johnson’s men came close to a play-off place.
Ultimately, though, they fell short and now the fight is on to try and keep their players – of which Flint is certainly one.
They look to have seen off the interest of the Hammers for now, though, and it remains to be seen who Manuel Pellegrini’s men have a look at next if they are to put Flint on the back-burner.
The Hammers shouldn’t just park this idea and have done with already.
Flint is a good player and later on in the summer, he might push for a move if he sees that there is significant Premier League interest.
Ultimately, the Robins do not have to sell but you wouldn’t say the Hammers should completely give up the ghost just yet.
