Earlier today, we covered a little snippet from Marca who seemed to already be bored with the Pablo Fornals to West Ham transfer.

That’s not because they don’t think it’s an exciting move for the Villarreal midfielder, but more to do with them believing the agreement is there and Fornals will become a Hammer for €27m.

There’s not really a lot more they could say, and it was also quiet elsewhere in the Spanish media.

Now AS, who were the ones to start the whole thing, say Fornals’ transfer to West Ham ‘will be announced shortly’.

They expect that to happen in the ‘next few hours’, and then everything will be official and the matter closed.

It’s again stated the player is moving for €27m, with Villarreal failing to get his full release clause but still coming away with a good deal.

The 23 year old made 50 appearances last season, scoring five goals and adding six assists.
