West Ham’s Jose Fonte closing in on move to Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang

West Ham defender Jose Fonte is closing in on a move to Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang.

Fonte joined the Hammers in an £8m deal from Southampton in January 2017.

The Portugal international has struggled during the current campaign, however, making just eight appearances and is currently recovering from ankle surgery.

The decision by former boss Slaven Bilic to sign Fonte from Southampton and Robert Snodgrass from Hull was publicly ridiculed by West Ham co-owner David Sullivan, who told The Guardian: “My kids begged me not to sign them.”

That provoked an angry response from the 34-year-old, who now looks set to join Dalian Yifang.
