Darren Fletcher transfer to West Ham in doubt

Darren Fletcher’s proposed transfer from Manchester United to West Ham is now in doubt despite the experienced midfielder having undergone a medical with the east London club on Friday afternoon.

Louis van Gaal had confirmed during his press conference ahead of the meeting with Leicester that Fletcher had travelled south for his medical examination with West Ham and, it appeared, a move was almost a forgone conclusion.

However, it has since been reported by the Daily Mail that Fletcher moving to Upton Park is now uncertain after the 30-year-old failed to agree personal terms with his prospective new club, and has now returned to Manchester.

Fletcher has requested £75,000-per-week over three-and-a-half years but an agreement was not reached, and it is now unclear if the Scotland international will be leaving Old Trafford before the end of the season.

The veteran, who was named Manchester United’s vice-captain by Van Gaal in the summer, has grown frustrated at a lack of action this season - something the manager says has been expressed.

With Fletcher out of contract at the end of the campaign the club have agreed to an early release and, along with West Ham, there has also been interest from Tony Pulis at West Brom.

Fletcher has made almost 350 appearances in over a decade in the Manchester United first-team, winning the Premier League five times and the Champions League in 2008.
