Reported West Ham target Anthony Vanden Borre discusses his future

West Ham

West Ham are attempting to complete a deal to sign Anthony Vanden Borre.

Speaking to HLN, Anthony Vanden Borre has discussed his future amid reports claiming he has held talks with Premier League side West Ham.

The Belgian defender said: “Besnik Hasi [Anderlecht manager] has done everything to put me in the garbage. If necessary, I will see out my three year contract training with the B team, as I will certainly not leave.”

Vanden Borre was reported earlier this week to be holding talks with West Ham, as claimed by Sport, but he appears to have no desire to leave the club.

The 27-year-old defender has been cast out of the first team by Anderlecht boss Besnik Hasi, but he has admitted that he will willingly stay with RSCA to prove he deserves a place at the club.

This means he will be spending time with the B team, where he has already been outcast to by Hasi for the 2015/16 season.

However, he claims he would see out the remainder of his three year contract with the Belgian giants, as he has no plans to leave this summer.

This means that talks with West Ham must have broken down, as Vanden Borre would rather stay with Anderlecht than move to the Premier League.

It is a strange decision for the defender to make, considering it could effectively end his career, but clearly Vanden Borre believes he has what it takes to fight back into Hasi’s first-team in the coming months.
