The Spanish media simply refuse to leave West Ham in peace over Joan Jordan.
It’s being continually claimed the Hammers still want the Eibar player, regardless of the signing of Pablo Fornals, and are willing to pay his full €15m release clause.
Sevilla were thought to be on the verge of a deal, but they won’t increase their €12m offer, so the midfielder’s future ‘remains unresolved’ reports ElDesmarque.
It’s once again stated West Ham have ‘appeared in negotiations’ for the player. The Hammers may be being used to pressure Sevilla, although it’s stated the Andalusia club have come to an agreement with Jordan over a contract.
The stubbornness between Sevilla and Eibar over the €3m is what is holding things back.
Eibar have made their stance on the situation clear and they’d be losing face if they accepted less than the €15m. Club director Fran Garagarza was very tough in comments he made last week, claiming he’ll ‘fight to the death’ to keep Jordan.
He can hardly then accept €3m less than the clause without losing credibility.
