West Ham preparing £10m offer to Sunderland midfielder Colback

West Ham have targeted Sunderland Jack Colback for a summer move to east London, with the Hammers set to prepare a £10m package for the midfielder, according to The Daily Mail.

Colback’s contract at the Stadium of Light runs out over the course of the summer, and the club have made offers to the player to retain his services. All of these offers have been rebuffed, however, and Newcastle were thought to be the front runners to snap up the Killingworth-born 24-year-old on a free transfer.

West Ham, however, have put together a package likely to see off competition for his signature, with the contract said to be worth around £50k per week over four years – a huge pay rise for the Englishman who reportedly earned around £6k per week during this past season at Sunderland.

The reason for such an offer is said to be because the Hammers see the saving on any transfer fee as a big bonus, and look set to offset some of that to the player himself.

Colback has made over 100 appearances for the Black Cats, and club coach Gus Poyet was eager to keen the midfielder in the hopes of pushing Sunderland further up the Premier League table next season, but they are thought to be unable to compete with the offer put forward by West Ham.
