Robert Snodgrass may have only joined West Ham United from Hull City back in January, but his time at the London Stadium may already becoming to an end this summer.
The Scot impressed in the first half of last season with Hull, notching seven goals and three assists in 20 Premier League games, triggering major interest in his signature back in January.

It was West Ham who won the race for his signature, but he struggled to settle in East London this year, starting just eight league games and making 15 appearances in total, failing to register a goal or an assist.
West Ham added one winger this summer by signing Marko Arnautovic from Stoke City, and whilst Gokhan Tore was sent back to Besiktas and Sofiane Feghouli was sold to Galatasaray, BBC Sport report that Snodgrass has now been told that he is free to leave either on loan or permanently.
Snodgrass, 29, will now hope to find a new club in the last two weeks of the summer transfer window, and it seems that he would be welcomed back to former club Leeds United.
The winger joined Leeds from Livingston back in 2008, notching 41 goals in 193 games before leaving for Norwich City in 2012, but he has remained a popular figure at Elland Road off the back of his displays for the Whites.

Now, despite seeing Leeds sign Samu Saiz and Ezgjan Alioski this summer, fans have taken to Twitter to send messages to both Snodgrass and Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani, begging them to strike a deal to take Snodgrass back to Elland Road this summer, believing he can provide the creativity that Leeds require.

Ultimately, the deals for Alioski and Saiz may mean that Leeds aren't in the market for another winger or playmaker before the transfer deadline, especially with the likes of Kemar Roofe, Stuart Dallas and Hadi Sacko also at Thomas Christiansen's disposal, whilst Snodgrass' wages could also scupper a return to Leeds - but if they did pull off a deal, fans would seemingly be delighted.
