West Ham coach Stuart Pearce says Manchester United target Thomas Souchek will not be leaving West Ham in the summer transfer window.
The 26-year-old has enjoyed a standout 2020-21 campaign in the Premier League, with nine goals recorded through 29 appearances for David Moyes’ European-chasing outfit.
But his performances over the past 12 months has led to alot of speculation in the media that the likes of Manchester United are keeping a very close eye, ahead of a possible transfer move when the window opens up in the summer window.
But Pearce has sought to quash the rumours before they get out of hand, telling talkSPORT of Soucek: “No, he’s happy here and he’s not going anywhere, that’s for sure.
“He’s been brilliant here, I’ve got to say. Dave brought him into the club in January of last season and since then he’s just been brilliant.
“He’s got a wonderful attitude to work, on his days off he comes in to work, he’s just really an absolute pleasure to work with.
“As a man he is top quality. He and [Vladimir] Coufal, the two Czech boys, they’ve both been brilliant.
“And Tomas can be a handful, too. England will face Czech Republic in the [Euro 2020] group stages and his ability in both boxes is very, very good.”
Look, Souchek is a very happy man and has shown no desire to leave the Hammers over the next couple of windows, but if United do come calling and make an offer to get a deal done, it will be very interesting to see if he is able to turn down a potential move to Old Trafford.
