Sun shades of Rio
In spite of recording back-to-back blank sheets for the primary time in 13 months, the Hammers nonetheless want to bolster their backline if they’re to keep away from a repeat of remaining season.
Moyes’ facet conceded the fifth-highest quantity of objectives remaining season, so it infrequently sudden that one, they completed simply 5 issues adrift from relegation and two, that the 57-year-old is determined for additions on the again.
Rodon suits the profile of the entirety West Ham and GSB want to convey again some positivity to the membership.

That’s what we see with Rodon.”
