West Ham weigh-up 'terminating Felipe Anderson's loan at Porto'

West Ham weigh-up ‘terminating Felipe Anderson’s loan at Porto’ with Brazilian only managing five matches for Portuguese club

  • West Ham’s Felipe Anderson joined Porto this summer on a season-long loan
  • The Brazilian winger had fallen out of favour with David Moyes last season 
  • Anderson will likely to be sold this summer, but his price has fallen drastically
  • The £37m signing has five appearances for Porto and could be recalled early 
  • The Hammers will likely look to loan the player elsewhere in Europe this month 

Felipe Anderson’s loan at Porto just hasn’t worked out, and West Ham are reportedly plotting to recall the winger early and pack him off elsewhere this month. 

The Brazilian has yet to play a full 90 minutes in Portugal and has been exiled from their league squad since his second appearance, rendering his temporary stay pointless. 

Anderson dropped down the pecking order under Moyes at West Ham and the 27-year-old looked set to be sold in the summer. With little interest, the £115,000-a-week wide-man was shipped abroad on a temporary basis.  

Felipe Anderson’s loan spell at Porto has already fallen flat, making just five appearances 

The Brazilian fell out-of-favour at West Ham last season and needs a move to revive his career

David Moyes has little interest in Anderson and will likely look to jet him off for another loan 

Anderson’s value-boosting mission has failed and the Brazilian could he heading back to east London this month, according to the Guardian. 

With Moyes unlikely to involve him, the former Lazio and Santos talent seems set to head back on-loan elsewhere before a sale in the summer.    

Anderson’s first season looked promising after Manuel Pellegrini signed him on a club-record transfer in 2018, chipping-in with nine goals and four assists in the Premier League as the Hammers finished the campaign tenth.   

Anderson was favoured under Manuel Pellegrini before the former Man City boss was sacked

However, after Pellegrini was sacked in December he was never relied-upon again, playing a mere three minutes of the Hammers’ final seven games last season, which saved them from relegation. 

Though they had a shaky start, West Ham certainly haven’t missed Anderson. 

Moyes’ men are cruising in tenth after 17 games, just three points behind fourth-placed Tottenham.
