West Ham midfielder set for exit is eyed by Championship trio - report
By Derek Smithson
West Ham are looking to sell Robert Snodgrass in the summer and he is being eyed by thee Championship clubs, according to a report.
The Daily Mirror claim that the Hammers want to get rid of the midfielder despite signing him for £10million in January from Hull.
It is understood that they will listen to offers for the 29-year-old and that Championship trio Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday would all take him.
However, the report details that the Scotland international does not want to drop down a division and West Ham feel that newly promoted Brighton could be a good fit.
Snodgrass arrived in a big-money deal six months ago and signed a £50,000-a-week deal at the London Stadium.

However, he has been unable to impress West Ham supporters and failed to score in 15 appearances since his move.
The wide man had scored 9 goals in just 24 appearances with Hull prior to his move and was unable to adjust to his new side’s style.
Football Insider verdict:
Snodgrass is certainly still Premier League quality and he is making the right decision by ignoring potential Championship interest. West Ham were struggling for form last season and they should persist for a bit longer with the £10million signing. The winger was unable to cement his position in the starting XI, but may need time to adjust and there is no doubting his ability. He is a superb set-piece taker and could still offer a lot to Slaven Bilic’s side if given time. Snodgrass had been in superb form in the first half of the season with Hull and proved that he can be a match winner in the top flight. They do lack real quality from the wide areas and allowing Snodgrass go so quickly could be a big mistake.
