Newcastle, Aston Villa and Everton are on red alert while Tomas Soucek and West Ham struggle to agree a new deal

TOMAS SOUCEK’s future at West Ham is in doubt as the midfielder is haggling over a new contract.

The indefatigable Czech, who is halfway through a four-year contract, was told last season he would not be getting a pay raise anytime soon.

And the club might even be willing to listen to £30m offers for the 27-year-old.

He is currently far down the payroll behind West Ham’s top earners like defender Kurt Zouma, who earns in excess of £120,000 a week.

Contract talks were taking place in February when workhorse Soucek was told there was no prospect of a pay rise at the moment.

Since then there have been no more negotiations.

And with the player and club locked in a stalemate, rival clubs have been alerted to consider a move for a player who cost West Ham just £17million two summers ago.

Newcastle, Everton and Aston Villa are all showing interest.

Soucek spent the first six months of 2020 on loan at the London Stadium but was so successful that the deal automatically became permanent the following July.

He has developed an impressive partnership with fellow midfielder Declan Rice and although performances were not as consistent last season as in his debut year, Soucek is still considered a vital part of West Ham’s squad.

Irons manager David Moyes has signed just one player this summer – Moroccan defender Nayef Aguerd, 26, from French club Rennes for £30million.

But the Scot is close to making Alphonse Areola’s loan from Paris Saint-Germain permanent.

SunSport understand the 29-year-old goalkeeper’s £10.5million move will take place early next week, with personal terms close to agreement.

The Hammers have appointed former QPR manager Mark Warburton, 59, as first-team coach to replace Stuart Pearce.

Warburton, 59, joins David Moyes’ team after ending his three-year tenure as manager of QPR at the end of last season.

He was hired to replace Stuart Pearce, who announced his departure back in May to “pursue other challenges”.

Warburton will join Rush Green’s team when they return to pre-season this weekend.
