Sunderland have became the latest club to be interested in West Ham winger Robert Snodgrass. The 29-year-old only joined the Hammers back in January but made just eight Premier League starts. The £8million pricetag could put the Black Cats off, although Grayson brought the best out of Snodgrass when the duo were at Leeds United together. But if a deal could be struck, would it be a good move for Sunderland – and why hasn’t his time at West Ham worked out so far? Sam Blacklock assesses the situation. Payet replacement Snodgrass was brought in from Hull in January for £10.2m to replace Dimitri Payet who joined Marseille, but fans have become impatient with the Scotland international, who has failed to make his mark at the London Stadium. He was playing behind big-name players in East London, such as Manuel Lanzini, Michail Antonio and Mark Noble, making his chances very limited.
