West Ham sets new season ticket record

West Ham has set a new club record after they increased the number of season ticket holders from 52,000 to 54,000.

Two thousand half season tickets went on sale after an out of court settlement which saw the London Stadium capacity increase from 57,000 to 60,000. These were snapped up quickly from members of the season ticket waiting list claimed by the club to still number over forty thousand.

The new 60,000 capacity will be broken down as 54,000 season ticket holders, 3,600 of which are corporate hospitality members in Club London, 3,000 seats for away supporters and an additional one thousand seats for general sale taking additional tickets to 3,000.

Manchester United eyeing January swoop for West Ham ace Issa Diop, he could cost them £60m

Antony Martin

Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing the West Ham United defender.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, Manchester United could be set to make a January move for West Ham centre-back Issa Diop, but the Frenchman would command a fee in excess of £60 million.

The 21-year-old joined the Hammers from Toulouse in the summer, for a fee believed to be worth somewhere in the region of £22 million, and he has gone on to establish himself as one of Manuel Pellegrini's most important players, making 19 appearances in all competitions.

The Daily Mail claims that Manchester United have scouted the centre-back, and are keen to bring him to Old Trafford, but they would have to pay nearly treble the amount that West Ham parted with for his services six months ago.

Good signing for United?

Standing at 6ft 4in tall, Diop cuts an imposing figure, and he is incredibly strong and commanding in the air - something that United have desperately lacked in central defence recently.

The France under-21 international is still slightly rough around the edges, however, and it could be argued that the Red Devils need a ready-made, more complete centre-back in January.

Diop undoubtedly has a great future ahead of him, however, and he could go on to be a legend at Old Trafford, if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does in fact manage to prise him away from the London Stadium next month.

West Ham will obviously want to keep hold of him, but they might just find it hard to resist any potential overtures made by United, especially if they offer anywhere near the reported figure of £60 million.

I wouldn't even start there.

He is one of our best players and will be a huge asset to us. You start talking transfers about players like Diop and it sends the wrong message.

Yes, money talks, but there are just certain players and times when you just don't even go there.

Impossible. Alex V reckoned he was worth 10% of that value.
