West Ham demand 12million for loan star

West Ham are understood to have told Aston Villa it will cost them 12million to sign Robert Snodgrass on a permanent basis.

The 30-year-old former Hull City winger featured just 15 times for the Hammers following a 10million January 2017 move from Humberside, before securing a season-long loan at Villa for whom he has been something of a revelation this season.

The Birmingham-based side, who are currently on the verge of confirming a place in the Championship play-offs and who still retain an outside chance of winning automatic promotion are said to be keen to sign Snodgrass on full-time basis.

However the chances of that almost certainly depend on the Villains securing promotion, whether automatically or via the play-offs else the Scottish international is almost certainly going to prove too expensive.

Although David Moyes suggested during the last transfer window that he would be interested in seeing what Snodgrass has to offer, the chances of the winger returning to West Ham are slim, at best, as a result of comments made by co-chairman David Sullivan.

The player was sent on loan following a very public bust-up with the club's co-owner, who told a reporter that his two sons - Jack and Dave - begged him not to sign Snodgrass from Hull last year.
