It wouldn’t be West Ham’s only millionaire signing in this market. The club have also agreed a £30m transfer deal with Manchester United for defender Harry Maguire, underscoring the team’s ambition to strengthen both their defensive line and midfield.
James Ward-Prowse’s career is inseparable from Southampton as he has become a key pillar of the team through the academy. He has made 422 appearances for the South Coast team and contributed 55 goals and 55 assists over the course of his career.
Ward-Prowse is much more than a ‘dead ball specialist’. His leadership and dedication on and off the pitch have made him a key figure in the Southampton dressing room. Last season he was a symbol of stability at a difficult time for the club in the Premier League.
West Ham are on the verge of signing a reliable and consistent player who will add a unique dimension to the team’s midfield. As well as bringing quality and versatility to the game, Ward-Prowse brings strong leadership and commitment which could be invaluable to West Ham’s success next season.
