Sonny Perkins has left West Ham with the club furious at the nature surrounding the Academy graduates departure.

As exclusively revealed by our ITK ExWHUemployee on Patreon a month ago, Perkins had been looking likely to depart having not being able to agree on a new deal, with Ex reporting a high wage demand for his position at the club.

The club have now confirmed that Perkins has left, with the official statement clearly outlining the anger felt by West Ham, with the club suggesting a rule breaking approach from another club.

The statement on the Official Website:

West Ham United invests millions of pounds annually into its world-renowned Academy of Football – and naturally the Club is extremely disappointed that Sonny has chosen not to continue his development with the Hammers.

The Club is disappointed with Perkins’ representatives and strongly believe he was approached to sign for another club which led to him asking to be released from his scholarship at West Ham United.

West Ham United take this matter very seriously – we believe the rules and structures in place at the Football Association and Premier League should be upheld at all times.

The Club will be making no further comment.
