West Ham goalkeeper Nathan Trott set for summer exit

West Ham goalkeeper Nathan Trott could be set for exit in the summer transfer window. 

According to journalist, Adam Leventhal, the Hammers are in talks with FC Copenhagen over the permanent signing of the 25-year-old goalkeeper.

Writing on the transfer live blog (10 May) for The Athletic, Leventhal shares that while a permanent transfer has yet to be agreed, there is an expectation that a fee will be agreed in the region of £1 million.

Trott spent last season on loan in Denmark at Vejle Boldklub. Now, FC Copenhagen want to get him signed permanently instead of a loan deal but the Hammers won’t stand in his way.

West Ham have released their third-choice goalkeeper Joseph Anang, 23, and Julen Lopetegui wants to sign another new goalkeeper.

The move makes sense for all parties

Trott has come through the academy ranks at West Ham, and has only managed one senior appearance for the club. He has mostly spent time on loan, and it is high time for him to move to a club where he can play regularly.

Last season, Alphonse Areola was the first-choice keeper at the club, and Lukasz Fabianski played as his understudy. With Fabianski approaching the fag end of his career, it will be interesting to see if Lopetegui replaces him.

The Hammers have been heavily linked with a move for Wes Foderingham. He is expected to join the Hammers on a free transfer, and the move is likely to take place once Trott completes his transfer.

West Ham made a late move to sign Corinthians goalkeeper Carlos Miguel, but he will most likely end up at Nottingham Forest instead.
