Karren Brady wrote her regular column for the Sun last night, and criticised one of Slaven Bilic's signings, when discussing the need for David Moyes to strengthen his squad in January.

Bilic spent £10.2 million on bringing Robert Snodgrass to the club from Hull City in January, but the winger failed to establish himself at the London Stadium, and was subsequently farmed out to Aston Villa on a season-long loan in the summer.

It seems as though he has no future at West Ham, having already been criticised by the club's co-owner David Sullivan, and now by Brady.

The Hammers vice-chairwoman claimed the Scot was not exactly a triumph, when writing he regular column for the Sun, insisting that West Ham will not be shopping in the bargain bin next month:

"Robert Snodgrass wasn’t exactly a triumph, while Hammers fans could name several foreign players who added little. The obvious fact is we need one or two who the manager believes will be a real plus. But no bargains that fall apart under the Prem’s pressure"

To be fair to Snodgrass, he has actually performed fairly well during his time with Villa, chalking up two goals and six assists in 19 Championship outings so far this season.

And after Brady's words, it would be no surprise to see the 30-year-old make his switch to the Villans a permanent one, either next month or in the summer.
