West Ham midfielder Tomas Soucek has been reported to be a target for Inter Milan, with January a possible time for his exit.

The report in the Daily Mail suggests that our Hammers would consider the sale in the new year – to risk losing him for free when this season concludes, however The West Ham Way can confirm this is not the case.

Soucek for one is not available on a free transfer any time soon, with the player having signed a new 4-year contract in the summer, to take his deal to 2027.

Furthermore, the player is in excellent form for David Moyes this season, therefore the chances of our Hammers entertaining offers for the player are incredibly remote.

The Czech international has been back to his best for the club so far this campaign, having already scored 4 goals in all competitions thus far – making him once again one of the clubs most important players as we look to build on the start made.

The fact the contract wasn’t formally announced by the club may have lead others within the media to believe that a new deal was not in place, however it certainly is, and Souceks future as of now and the new few years remains firmly in east London.

As reported previously, West Ham are now set to open contract renewal talks with certain players, including Lucas Paqueta – who was of significant interest of Manchester City during the summer transfer window.
