West Ham United’s Robert Snodgrass is reportedly wanted by Leeds United and Newcastle United among other clubs in the summer transfer window.

Much was expected of Robert Snodgrass when he joined West Ham United from Hull City for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £10.2 million.

The former Leeds United and Norwich City winger was expected to make the Hammers stronger and help them break into the top 10 of the Premier League last season.

The 29-year-old winger, though, failed to make a massive impact at the London Stadium. Snodgrass made eight starts and seven substitute appearances in the Premier League for the Hammers, providing two assists in the process.

The Mirror reported last month that West Ham are looking to offload the Scotland international winger in the summer transfer window, with Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday claimed to be interested in him.

According to Football.London, Newcastle United, Leeds United, Norwich City and Brighton & Hove Albion want to sign Snodgrass this summer.

The West Ham winger, though, seems to be determined to prove himself for Slaven Bilic’s side, and has suggested that he wants to remain at the Premier League club for the 2017-18 campaign.

“When I came in we weren’t winning many games and it was a tough time, given that West Ham were tipped to do well after such a great season the previous year,” Snodgrass told West Ham’s official website.

“I think our record when I started games wasn’t too bad, but I need to start scoring and creating goals, it’s as simple as that.

“It’s been difficult – it is something that has been on my mind, and something that gives me that motivation to push on and show people that I can do it at West Ham. Once I get that first goal I really believe I can kick on and show what I can do.”
