Hernández close to West Ham exit

Javier Hernández is close to completing a quick fire exit from West Ham according to reports today.

The Mexican only arrived at the London Stadium in the summer, with much fanfare about the ‘bargain’ £16m signing from Bayer Leverkusen. However, he has struggled to readjust to life back in the Premier League and is seemingly still not favoured by David Moyes.

Hernandez of course previously worked under Moyes during the Scot’s short spell in charge of Manchester United. He made 35 appearances for United in the 2013/14 season, but was restricted to just 12 starts in all and just six in the Premier League as he struggled to get game time.

It has been a similar tale this year for Hernandez, playing a full 90 minutes on just six occasions for the Hammers this season.

Chicharito has been since linked to making a swift departure from the London Stadium, with some reports having linked him with a return to United, while others have linked him with a move to the MLS.

However, Goal claim that the 29-year-old is close to completing an €8.5m move to Turkish side Besiktas.
