West Ham United fans are not at all keen on reports that Aaron Long could be signed.
The centre-back is not particularly well known to Premier League fans, as he has previously never played outside of America.
There are some West Ham fans who feel that the transfer shows a lack of ambition, while others are critical of the offer being a loan one, with a view to a permanent deal.

West Ham’s board are under huge pressure currently, with frustrations rising at the London Stadium.
The Hammers have badly underperformed this season, and currently sit just one place above the relegation zone.
West Ham were also knocked out of the FA Cup at the weekend by Championship opposition in the form of West Bromwich Albion.
The hope is that Long’s arrival would help West Ham become harder to break down over the remainder of the campaign, if David Moyes’s side can get a deal over the line before transfer deadline day.
