West Ham fail to land Barcelona youngster Fontas

West Ham have admitted defeat in a bid to lure Barcelona starlet Andreu Fontas to Upton Park, skysports.com reports. Fontas' current deal has a buy-out clause of just £2.5million and The Hammers made their move to land the highly-rated defender.

However, Barca have now persuaded the 20 year old that he is very much part of their first-team plans and he is set to sign a long-term deal at Camp Nou.

Fontas made his debut for Barca's first-team last season and Pep Guardiola is ready to include him in his plans next term.
