Arsenal defender Holding ready to snub West Ham loan move in latest transfer blow for Moyes

WEST HAM face more disappointment in their search for a new defender with Rob Holding ready to snub the chance of a loan move from Arsenal.

The Hammers had been hoping to take the centre-back to the London Stadium having failed in their bids to sign James Tarkowski from Burnley.

Arsenal had reservations about the inquiry from their London rivals with boss Mikel Arteta already short of other defenders through injury.

But SunSport understands even if the Gunners were to accept the £5million for the season proposal, a move to West Ham is unlikely for the 24-year-old.

It means boss David Moyes will have to find another player he feels can shore up his leaky defence after a summer of frustration in his attempts to sign anyone.

Brighton’s Shane Duffy rejected a move to the club in favour of joining Celtic, before repeated bids for England defender Tarkowski were knocked back by Burnley.


West Ham are the only club in the Premier League not to have signed a senior player this summer, as the Covid-19 lockdown presses hard on their finances.

They were forced to sell academy product Grady Diangana to West Brom to bring in some much-needed money to help fund the priority signing of a centre-back.

It has also meant they have been unable to follow through in their interest in Brentford’s Rico Henry, even though left-back is also seen as a problem position.
