Javier Hernandez Hands in Transfer Request at West Ham as Sevilla Move Draws Closer

​West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez is close to sealing an £8m move to Sevilla, the Mexican handing in a transfer request to help see the deal over the line.

With the Hammers paying a club-record fee of £45m for Eintracht Frankfurt forward Sebastien Haller in the summer, the former Manchester United star has decided to look elsewhere to ensure he gets regular game-time in 2019/20. He has less than a year left to run on his contract at the London Stadium having joined from Bayer Leverkusen two seasons ago.

Hernandez was on target as ​West Ham drew 1-1 with ​Brighton in the second round of ​Premier League fixtures this campaign, taking him to a total of 17 goals for the club in all competitions.

According to the ​Daily Mail, that is how his record with the Irons will end, with the 31-year-old currently in Spain to put the finishing touches on his Sevilla switch.

West Ham have been negotiating a deal with Los Hispalenses for the last week and an agreement between the two teams is close.

The ​La Liga outfit have made a £7m offer for Hernandez, but his employers are holding out for the aforementioned £8m sum.

Along with Haller, the Hammers purchased young striker Albian Ajeti over the off-season, bringing in the 18-year-old from Swiss side Basel.

Hernandez made 55 top-flight appearances for West Ham, adding to the 103 first division matches he played for ​United between 2010 and 2016.

He earned two Premier League winner's medals during his time at Old Trafford before leaving for ​Real Madrid on loan and then Leverkusen permanently.
