Prospects for a loan deal with West Ham are looking optimistic.

Hope for a West Ham loan deal is on the rise, as reported by Sky Sports. The club is currently engaged in discussions for a loan agreement, and Sky Sports has reliable connections with the club’s media department.

While the preference for the player’s transfer exists on the part of City, substantial interest from Premier League and European clubs makes a permanent move more challenging. David Moyes, a keen admirer of the player, had previously lost out on acquiring him to Pep Guardiola for a fee less than what West Ham had offered.

According to Sky, Crystal Palace and Newcastle have also initiated talks with City regarding a deal in the January transfer window. Additionally, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus have expressed their interest.

However, West Ham, potentially with significant input from Tim Steidten, appears to be the frontrunner, having entered into negotiations with City. If the Hammers opt for a permanent deal in the summer, it is estimated to cost around the £40 million that City initially paid for the player.

Despite having made only 16 appearances for City, the 28-year-old, boasting 31 England caps, would be considered a valuable acquisition at that price.
