West Ham After SJM? Hammers Spy On McGinn

West Ham After SJM? Hammers Spy On McGinn

Hibs star midfielder John McGinn could be poised for a move to the English Premiership with The Scottish Sun exclusive confirming interest from West Ham.

Hammers boss David Moyes sent former Scotland international Billy McKinley on a spying mission to Easter Road in order to watch the 23 year old against Aberdeen on Saturday.

The Clarets no.2 would likely be impressed by the dynamic display McGinn produced throughout the 90 minutes with Hibs producing a terrific performance with Super John being the heartbeat in a commanding victory, The Dons flattered by the scoreline.

Hibees blew their second placed opponents away with a virtuoso display of attacking panache in the second period with Scott Allan and Dylan McGeouch ably supporting McGinn in the middle of the park.

Unfortunately the midfield maestro only has 18 months left on his current deal so any speculative figure regarding his transfer fee would likely not be a true reflection of his market value but should Moyes follow up his interest Hibs are likely to be happy with modest millions a likely settlement.

Bang average players go for £10 million plus South of the Border and McGinn is far from that. He`s a top quality modern midfielder who can reach the very top. A sell on clause could be the most important factor when he eventually moves on.
