West Ham United defender Winston Reid appears to be edging closer to a move away from his current club with his wage demands making a January sale almost certain, according to reports.
The centre-back has been one on several key performers in an impressive start for Sam Allardyce’s side, who currently sit fourth in the English Premier League table after taking twenty-six points from their opening fifteen games – a tally they didn’t reach until February last season.
Reid’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season, so the Hammers may well cash in when the transfer window reopens in the new year, with both Arsenal and Liverpool interested in securing his services.
Since arriving at Upton Park from Danish Superliga side Midtjylland in the summer of 2010, the New Zealand international has made one hundred and fourteen appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring seven goals.
He was part of the squad that won promotion back to England’s elite league via the play-offs in 2012 and was named the club’s player of the season a year later.
