West Ham slap £8m price tag on 29-year-old, move to PL rivals on the cards - report
By Danny Wright
West Ham will listen to offers for January signing Robert Snodgrass this summer, according to a report.
Hammers news site Claret and Hugh claim that the club has slapped an £8million price tag on the 29-year-old, who has failed to impress since arriving from Hull in the winter transfer window.
It is understood that Snodgrass is “very likely” to move on this summer, with West Ham’s Premier League rivals Newcastle said to be his likely destination after they tried to sign him before he switched the London Stadium.
A move to St. James’ Park is potentially on the cards according to Claret and Hugh, but West Ham World have previously reported that top-flight newcomers Brighton are preparing a bid to sign the winger.
This latest report from Claret and Hugh comes just a day after Snodgrass asserted that he will stay with West Ham for next season following crunch talks with manager Slaven Bilic.

The Scottish international, who has previously played for Leeds, Norwich and Hull, made 15 appearances for the Irons during the second half of the campaign but failed to score and supplied just two assists.
Football Insider Verdict
Snodgrass hasn’t had much time to settle down at the London Stadium and he could do with taking a summer to get used to the surroundings. It’s always hard for January signings to hit the ground running, that’s why a lot of clubs choose not to sign players in the winter. Snodgrass played well for Hull and Norwich in the Premier League, meaning that he could still become a good winger for the Hammers over the next year. Time will tell, but Newcastle and Brighton would be snapping up a seriously good player if it’s true that Bilic wants him gone.
