West Ham dealt Another Blow in player pursuit

Hull have reportedly turned down a winter approach from West Ham United for star performer Robert Snodgrass. The Scotland international has been in top form for the Tigers this season despite their dreaded run in the Premier League.

Snodgrass, 29, recently snubbed a long-term contract at the KCOM Stadium, only to see the Tigers activate the additional year on his existing deal.

According to BBC Sport, the Hammers have faced yet another transfer blow after Hull insisted that they would not be offloading Snodgrass in the current transfer window.

Nevertheless, Slaven Bilic’s side are expected to come up with a fresh bid for the player as they seek to play catch up following a disappointing first half to the Premier League season.

Premier League rivals Crystal Palace are also keen on the Scottish footballer who has netted seven of Hull’s 17 strikes in the top flight this term.

West Ham United were previously interested in resigning Jermain Defoe in the transfer window before they received a hands-off warning from Sunderland.
