West Ham: Update on Aaron Cresswell following the transfer failure

After negotiations for a last-minute transfer to Wolves fell through, sources have told that Aaron Cresswell is being reintegrated into the West Ham team.

The 33-year-old left-back nearly left the London Stadium this summer for the club’s Premier League rivals, ending a nine-year stay.

Wolves made a strong effort to close a deal as they sought to bring in a left-sided defender who could play both as a left-back and centre-back.

The West Ham Defender might have to stay until the end of the season

Earlier in the transfer season, the London club turned down a £2.5 million approach from the Midlands team for Cresswell. West Ham refused to accept anything less than their £4 million asking price.

According to rumours, Cresswell had an agreement with Wolves and was eager for it to go through.

He was once told to train alone after a particularly tense confrontation caused him to be cut from the West Ham senior squad.

The two teams were unable to come to an agreement on a transfer fee. Thus the defender will now have to stay until at least January and probably until his contract expires at the end of the season.

The three-time England international has not played a minute of senior action this year. But Cresswell has made the West Ham Premier League bench for the last three games. However, he was not included in the squad for the team’s opening-day match against Bournemouth.

On Thursday night, Cresswell participated in a behind-the-scenes friendly game against Ipswich Town. He netted a free kick in the 1-1 draw.

In addition to Danny Ings, Lukasz Fabianski, and free agent Jesse Lingard, the veteran defender had company in the lineup.

During the 2022–23 season, Cresswell played in 38 games for a total of more than 2800 minutes of football. He also provided three assists for West Ham during the 2022-23 season.

Despite signing Emerson Palmieri last summer, he remained David Moyes’ first choice left-back for the majority of the season. He also helped West Ham win the Europa Conference League title.

Since joining the Hammers from Ipswich in 2014, he has made 331 appearances, with 283 of those being in the Premier League.
