There has been speculation in the media and further movement in the pursuit of Youssef En-Nesyri, which ExWHUEmployee has provided clarity on.

As reported exclusively by our man-in-the-know and published on The West Ham Way website, the club made an offer of a loan move for the Moroccan international and Ex has revealed that an agreement was reached with the Spanish side, as it included an obligation to buy.

However, the player himself is not keen to move on loan and would at this stage prefer to remain at Sevilla to help the La Liga side in their relegation battle from the Spanish top tier.

It is a difficult situation for Sevilla due to their financial troubles at present, hence why the loan offer by West Ham was accepted. But the player is keen to remain to help them avoid the drop.

Speaking on Patreon, ExWHUEmployee stated that although the club and manager are keen to sign the Moroccan striker, the players stance means that at present they are accepting the deal is now unlikely.

“When we reported the move last week, because it is behind our Patreon and was in a large update it wasn’t picked up on by other outlets,” stated Ex.

”Now it has been picked up  by other journalists no other than David Ornstein, who is very reliable and a top bloke many other sources are jumping on it and putting their own slight twist so it appears exclusive without any real evidence.

“As it stands we believe that West Ham have accepted that he will not join. There may be another attempt to convince him to move in the future but for now it isn’t on.

”As we have continually reported throughout the window the club are exploring loan moves for players and could move to other targets.”
