West Ham Fans Seem Absolutely Delighted About Havard Nordtveit’s Departure

West Ham Fans Seem Absolutely Delighted About Havard Nordtveit’s Departure

West Ham United have sold defender Håvard Nordtveit to Bundesliga club Hoffenheim and it seems Hammers fans aren’t terribly sad to see him go.

The 26-year-old Norway international only arrived in East London last summer on a free transfer from another Bundesliga club, Borussia Mönchengladbach, and it looked like a shrewd bit of business by Slaven Bilic at the time.

But he really failed to impress in the Premier League, amidst claims he was repeatedly played out of position.

Bilic often deployed Nordtveit as a right-back, and he failed to adjust to the pace and power of English football.

Nordtveit joined Hoffenheim this afternoon on a deal until 2022, and considering West Ham managed to get around £2 million in return, supporters are absolutely delighted:

 

It looks like Nordtveit’s dismal year is over but was he really that bad? Will he go down as one of West Ham’s worst-ever modern-day signings?
