West Ham risk losing Soucek over contract stand-off

Tomas Soucek is ready to leave West Ham United this summer.

Soucek signed a foul-year deal when he joined West Ham, and is only half of the way through that.

The Sun says Soucek was told last season that he will not be getting a pay rise any time soon, and the London club could now be willing to offers in excess of £30million.

Since Soucek - who is some way down the list of the club's top earners - and the club learnt of their differences during negotiations in February, no talks have been held, which has kept rival clubs interested in a potential summer move.

Newcastle, Everton and Aston Villa have all shown interest in the midfielder, who has scored 19 goals in 105 games for the Irons.
