Did Hammers Really Need Batshuayi? He Never Seemed Keen

Michy Batshuayi has scuppered any chance of joining West Ham on loan despite Chelsea having reached an agreement sanctioning the move, Batshuayi's quite frankly astonishing wage demands finally put the nail in the coffin for the transfer to happen. Spanish club Real Betis, were also interested but they too have been put off by the demands of a player who only managed to score three goals in 23 appearances for Valencia while on loan during the first half of the season.

Batshuayi had been hoping for a move to Everton but the Merseyside club would have had to complete a permanent deal due to Premier League loan rules, as they already have Kurt Zuma on loan from Chelsea. Batshuayi obviously doesn't 'fancy' West Ham as this is the third and hopefully the final time the club has tried to sign him, a deal to take him from Marseille had been agreed a couple of seasons ago only for him to choose warming the bench at Chelsea instead. He hasn't pulled up any trees since his move from Marseille and is not the player needed by West Ham at the moment, especially at the crazy money involved.

We say let him go to where ever he wants, so long as it is not West Ham! Ed

Absolutely, we'd have been better off going for Cahill. Balbuena is out and Oggy is a tad accident prone.....

Hes nothing special and Palace have got themselves another costly Belgium liability!

However, the question remains that we did try to get him and he preferred CP ahead of us ... was it only the money?
