It seems that almost every transfer window we’ve covered over the past couple of years has seen West Ham United be interested in Duje Caleta-Car.

Talks between Marseille and the Hammers are said to have regularly taken place, and that was the case again over the course of January, when David Moyes needed a new centre-back brought in.

An offer of a loan was reportedly made, which the Ligue 1 side didn’t find particularly enticing, and the Croatia international, once again, stayed put.

He’s enjoyed a decent season, gaining Jorge Sampaoli’s trust through solid performances, which is why he was at a press conference ahead of Marseille’s clash against Metz, where he was asked about the past transfer window and his future.

Relayed by Le10 Sport, he said: “Every transfer window, I’m involved. They take about me in the press, they say I’m going to leave, but I’m still here. There can be offers, but the three parties need to be in agreement. Each transfer window, I’m talked about. Honestly, I’m tired of talking about it.

“I’ve been here for four years, I’m happy to be here. Yes, I’ve had interesting opportunities that didn’t go through, so when the moment comes, we’ll see, but I’m not thinking about it.”

The 25-year-old arrived from RB Salzburg in 2018, and has since gone onto making 109 appearances for the Ligue 1 club, scoring four goals and assisting another two.

He has featured 18 times in all competitions under Sampaoli this season, and will now see out the campaign before, most likely, ending up in the transfer rumours again, probably with West Ham mentioned more than once.
