Duje Ćaleta-Car is unlikely to leave Marseille for West Ham United on deadline day, Sport Witness understands.
Over the weekend, TuttoMercatoWeb explained the talks between the two clubs for the defender’s transfer had ‘accelerated’.
Earlier on Monday, we covered claims made by L’Equipe that the conditions offered by the Hammers to sign the 25-year-old have ‘not yet satisfied’ Marseille president Pablo Longaria.
There was no mention about what conditions were proposed by David Moyes’ side, but L’Equipe did indicate ‘the situation is likely to change today’.
However, a source has now told Sport Witness there is ‘no chance’ of Ćaleta-Car leaving the Ligue 1 side for West Ham on the last day of the January window.
Last summer, Wolverhampton Wanderers were one of the clubs credited with an interest in signing Ćaleta-Car.
The same source, who informed us the player is not likely to change clubs in the winter market, told Sport Witness last August the Croatian was ‘staying’ at Marseille.
Ćaleta-Car’s refusal to go elsewhere initially saw him being left out Jorge Sampaoli’s plans, before he was again given a chance at the French club. He has made 12 league starts this season.
