West Ham United are considering a January loan move for Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini, according to reports
The Belgium international is part of Jose Mourinho’s plans but has been on the periphery of the first team in recent weeks.
And the 29-year-old was responsible for giving away the crucial penalty in Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Everton after coming on as a late substitute.
After the Irons’ 5-1 home defeat by Arsenal at the weekend, West Ham manager Slaven Bilic suggested that his team’s ‘intensity’ had gone from last season.
‘The dedication to the cause is missing,’ he said. ‘The majority of the team, individually, have lost that intensity.
‘It is not ‘one of the reasons’. It is not ‘maybe’ that. It is a fact, 100 per cent, 500 per cent.’
The east Londoners are currently wallowing in 17th position in the Premier League table, while Mourinho’s men are in sixth.
Fellaini moved to United in 2013 from Everton for reported fee of £27m, but failed to make impact at Old Trafford and has been often criticized due to unconvincing displays.
Basement club Swansea City, meanwhile, are among the clubs keen on Ashley Young.
