Nayef Aguerd has a medical booked at West Ham this morning ahead of finalising a transfer from Rennes.

As exclusively revealed by our ITK ExWHUemployee on Patreon, the Moroccan defender is expected in to complete his medical today, this is despite late interest from Newcastle.

It is now widely reported in the media that Newcastle have attempted to hijack the transfer, following their supposed collapse of signing Sven Botman from Lille.

As always, Ex will keep our Patreons firmly up to date with the progress of this transfer, with many hoping the late interest from Eddie Howe will not derail a transfer our club have been working on for some time.
