West Ham chief Sullivan reveals market dictates Antonio position

West Ham chief David Sullivan says Michail Antonio will play as a winger this season.

On the arrival of Alvaro Arbeloa, Sullivan explained on whufc.com: "The decision has now been made that Michail Antonio will play as a winger after originally starting the season as a right back.

"As a result we had to move out a winger, getting a £1.5m loan fee plus wages covered on Enner Valencia, and have brought in a full back to compete with and help Sam Byram.

"We explored all avenues and managed to secure the signature of one of the more experienced full backs in the world and one with Premier League experience.

"He is ideally a few weeks away from playing in a game as he has not trained with a team since May and needs more game time."
