West Ham actually had £11m bid for midfielder rejected on deadline day

West Ham United had a move for Samuel Bastien rejected on deadline day, HBVL in Belgium have reported.

West Ham submitted an £11 million bid to Standard Liege for the 24-year-old, as they looked to wrap up some last minute business.

However, Standard were not willing to accept West Ham’s offer – and David Moyes’s side ended up having a disappointing end to the window.

Bastien has scored two goals in his first two games this season, so Standard’s reluctance to offload him was understandable.

Bastien could have helped to bolster West Ham’s midfield options for the campaign ahead though.

The Hammers actually have a good set of players in the centre of the pitch, with the likes of Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek both impressing, but Moyes appeared to want one more player to add to his midfield trio.

Bastien would have given West Ham more of an attacking threat in that area, but they simply could not agree a deal.

It was a similar feel of frustration for West Ham, who saw their attempts to sign numerous players fail over the course of the summer.

Moyes would have just brought him on in the 88th minute with Haller and Noble.

Re: Wednesday newspapers (includes West Ham)
I think Chelsea wanted some sort of guarantee the fella would play and Sully has obviously promised them that he would and agreed to some sort of payment to Chelsea as what can only be described as a fine.

Then i would suggest Moyes has gone "Bollocks!" and told them he picks the team.

Pure speculation based on the limited facts tho.

Have we broken the record for number of offers rejected for being too low in one window?

Re: Wednesday newspapers
Only we could come up with the idea of paying £50k every time he doesn’t play. What a stupid idea.

Re: Wednesday newspapers
That's how the cunty greedy for success clubs CONTROL those who are there but to give them 6 points each season......

...glad he knocked us back, stopped our owners for being subservient AGAIN to this factor.

Sven Roeder 2:30 Wed Oct 7
Re: Wednesday newspapers (includes West Ham)
I’m guessing the £50k was in lieu of a loan fee
Even if we didn’t play him in all 34 league games left it would be £1.7m

Probably the best way for Chelsea to do it for their purposes

Re: Wednesday newspapers
All players are subject to a loss of form. Ridiculous to potentially penalise dropping an out of form player.

Seems like the sort of idea thought up by an incompetent owner behind the back of his manager, but surely that can't be the case...

Re: Wednesday newspapers (includes West Ham)
The papers really are making the most of this £50k if the Chelsea lad didn’t play but its really not that sensational. Ultimately Chelsea are trying to ensure that if they put a young prospect out on loan that he gets game time and doesn’t just swap one bench for another. I would think that if we were looking to bring him in it would be to slot him straight in the first 11 so the £50k non play payment wouldn’t be something to worry about. I’m sure there would also be a clause that ensures we are not liable to it should he be injured. It really is just misleading headlines.

As usual it looks like Sully was waxing his carrott in the last few hours of the transfer window hoping he could impregnate someone or anyone really...even an innocent bystander would have done.

That's fucking disgusting. Good player, by all accounts, but thank god it didn't happen and we didn't get shafted by Chelsea.
