Liverpool ‘make enquiry’ for out-of-favour West Ham defender

Liverpool have made an enquiry over West Ham defender Issa Diop as they search for a centre-back before the transfer deadline.

The Reds are keen to strengthen their defensive ranks with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Fabinho and Joel Matip all on the sidelines.

Saturday’s Gossip suggests Liverpool could move for New York Red Bulls’ USA international Aaron Long, with Reading also eyeing a loan move for the 28-year-old.

The Athletic is reporting that Liverpool’s most likely solution will involve a loan signing or the recruitment of a free agent. It is also claimed that the champions have made an approach to West Ham’s Diop.

The 24-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at the London Stadium and sources close to the player say Liverpool have been in touch.

But West Ham are unlikely to sanction a loan deal without an obligation to buy, with a figure of £20million likely to be acceptable to the Hammers.

Odubeko Sends Moyes Reminder Of His Qualities With Brace For West Ham

Manchester United academy product Mipo Odubeko sent West Ham's first-team manager David Moyes a reminder of his qualities by being involved in all the three goals as the Hammers beat Southampton B 3-1 in the Premier League 2 on Friday night.

Odubeko is the third different player with a Nigerian background that Moyes has handed debuts to this season, the others being Ajibola Alese and Dapo Afolayan.

The 18-year-old returned from injury to be named in the starting lineup along with Alese and Afolayan, while Zuriel
Otseh-Taiwo, David Agbontohoma and Kazeem Olaigbe started for the Saints at the Rush Green Stadium.

Odubeko opened the scoring with a simple finish after he was set up by Afolayan in the 26th minute and the number 9 doubled the advantage from close range on 38 minutes with Afolayan involved in the build-up to the goal.

Olaigbe fired low past the West Ham goalkeeper to half the deficit in the 61st minute but the two-goal cushion was restored when Odubeko laid a pass to exciting midfielder Dan Chesters who slipped the ball under the goalkeeper twenty minutes from time.

Despite the win, West Ham remain bottom of the division with eight points from 12 games.


Gonçalo Cardoso joins FC Basel on loan

West Ham United can confirm that defender Gonçalo Cardoso has joined Swiss side FC Basel on an 18-month loan deal.

The Portugal youth international has featured eight times for the development squad so far this campaign, having made 16 appearances last season.

Cardoso will now look to acquire valuable first-team experience at Basel, who currently sit fourth in the Swiss Super League, nine points behind leaders Young Boys.

Everybody at West Ham United would like to wish Gonçalo all the best for his loan spell.
