Betting update: West Ham 29-year-old priced at just 5/2 to join PL newcomers

By Will Butcher

Brighton have been priced at just 5/2 to sign West Ham fringe player Robert Snodgrass this summer, according to the latest bookmakers’ odds.

Ladbrokes claim that the Seagulls are less than 3/1 to sign the 29-year-old who could leave the London Stadium, after a poor second half to the season following his move from Hull City.

This comes after independent website West Ham World claimed Brighton were set to make an £8million offer for Snodgrass, despite three years remaining on his current contract.

Southampton and Stoke are both valued at 7/1 to sign the 23-time Scotland international this summer, while Hull and Newcastle are both further out at 8/1.

Norwich are the only Championship side credited with a price in signing the former Livingston youth player, but are way out at a lengthy 12/1 to re-sign the former Canary.

Snodgrass signed for the Hammers in January after shining for relegated outfit Hull during the start of 2016-17, which saw him score goals during 24 league and cup encounters.

However, the former Leeds attacker failed to add to his tally following his £10million move to east London, providing only two assists in 15 games.

Now, the winger could be sold after failing to replace Dimitri Payet to the standard required, as manager Slaven Bilic looks to reinvigorate his side in the summer transfer window.

Football Insider verdict:

The Hammers need proven Premier League players on their side next season after a number of poor signings saw Bilic’s side struggle throughout the campaign. Simone Zaza, Havard Nordtveit and Arthur Masuaku have all failed to provide an impact with West Ham after joining from foreign sides and keeping or bringing new players in that have starred in the Premier League should be at the top of Bilic’s transfer priorities.
