Albion Bag Snodgrass

After agreeing a deal to sign Frederik Alves last month, West Ham United have now seen two players leave the club today.

This morning, a deal was agreed to see striker S├ębastien Haller move to the Netherlands, as he secured a permanent switch to Ajax and it was confirmed earlier that winger Robert Snodgrass has now completed his transfer to West Bromwich Albion for an undisclosed fee on an 18-month contract.

News of this deal came to light on Wednesday when it was confirmed that new Baggies’ boss Sam Allardyce had opened talks with The East London club over the players availability before a medical was completed and the deal was finalised.

The former Scotland international will add some top-flight experience to Allardyce’s squad who currently face an uphill battle to retain their Premier League status.

Snodgrass was brought to West Ham ironically by the man who Big Sam succeeded at The Hawthorns, Slaven Bilic in January 2017 from Hull City. In total, the Scotsman made eighty six appearances for the Irons but shortly after his arrival in Stratford, he was sent out on loan to Aston Villa for the entirety of the next season.

The former Leeds United man will hope to make his debut for Albion in their next top-flight fixture away at Wolverhampton Wanderers on 16 January before a quick reunion with his former club, as the Baggies make the trip to the East End three days later.
