Crystal Palace ready to move for West Ham winger

Michael Antonio is set to leave West Ham United with Crystal Palace set to lead the chase for the 29-year old winger.

Antonio is ready to depart the East London club, reports The Daily Mirror, after being told that he does not figure in the club’s long-term plans under new manager Manuel Pellegrini.

A £7 million buy from Nottingham Forest in September 2015, Antonio has made 90 senior appearances for the Hammers, scoring 21 goals., all but one in the Premier League. He has been called-up three times by England but has never made it on to the pitch, with injury ruling him out twice under Gareth Southgate.

The 2016 – 2017 West Ham player of the year, Antonio is under contract until 2021.

Despite that, he is now set to move on, with Crystal Palace leading the queue of teams wanting to sign him as they look to add additional pace to their attack.
