Fonte set for the Orient?


Filed: Thursday, 22nd February 2018

West Ham United's Portuguese central defender Jose Fonte has been linked with a move to China.

According to a report by the Daily Record's Duncan Castles, the 33-year-old Hammer has agreed to join Chinese Super League outfit Dalian Yifang in a deal worth in the region of 5.5million.

And the story adds that Fonte is due to travel to China next week in order to put pen to paper on a three-year contract with the Blue Hawks.

Fonte's long-term future at West Ham has been in doubt since co-owner David Sullivan told a newspaper that "my kids begged me not to sign them", in refernce to the former Southampton player and fellow 2017 recruit Robert Snodgrass.

Snodgrass - who left West Ham just six months after moving from Hull in a 10million switch - is currently enjoying a thoroughly successful season in the Championship with Aston Villa, where he is spending the season on loan.
