West Ham enter talks to potentially seal transfer deal for Championship star

After the success of last season, West Ham supporters will surely look back on this season with disappointment.

The Irons have struggled to settle into the London Stadium this season, had several injuries to key players throughout the campaign, exited the Europa League in the qualifying stage, and went through and unfortunate saga with Dimitri Payet which culminated with the French star leaving for Marseille in the January transfer window.

"He's in the squad", said Bilic on the official West Ham website.

When the names of both players were brought up in his pre-match press conference, Bilic was adamant West Ham must only acquire new additions who will have an immediate impact. He has a hip problem and has not played the last few games.

Andy Carroll is unlikely to feature, while Cheikhou Kouyate is out.

Reid, 28, will be sidelined for the World Cup warm-up event in Russian Federation, which starts on June 17, but will be back for the beginning of next season with the Premier League club.

The Clarets only home victory in their last six home contests with West Ham came in the Premier League in February 2010, with David Nugent and Daniel Fox bagging the goals.

The 18-year-old was given a new three-and-a-half year deal at West Ham earlier this season.

"He's so valuable for us and he makes such a big impact on our game that he is very important for us and when he's not available of course I feel it and the team feels it". They have also dropped the most in 2016-17 alone (22). "We have good vocal leaders on our team and we also have a good core of British players who are leaders plus some foreigners who are skippers in their teams".

West Ham have recently been linked in media reports with City striker Iheanacho and full-back Zabaleta. All in all though, I think that the Hammers are the better side and in a dead rubber like this one, they will get the job done.
