West Ham had fee agreed for Moffi


West Ham and FC Lorient had reportedly agreed a deal for striker Terem Moffi in January, Lorient's president Loic Fery told French outlet L'Equipe, despite a move never materialising.

“We had accepted an offer from Marseille and another from West Ham, which were within our parameters. When you close the door, you have to know when to stop,” Fery said.

Despite offers from these two clubs, Moffi eventually joined OGC Nice on loan with an obligatory option to buy in the summer.
