The Hammers would have loved to have the Ghanaian this winter to help in their quest for a photo finish in the league

Ghana international Harrison Afful’s supposed move to English Premiership side West Ham hit a snag due to his involvement in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

Goal.com Ghana can reveal that The Irons were on the verge of signing the Esperance lateral defender, but gave up the interest in him and signed Wolfsburg defender Emanuel Pogatetz because of his involvement in the Nations Cup.

The Hammers would have loved to have the Ghanaian this winter to help in their quest for a photo finish in the league but opted out, a source close to him stated.

Afful who has been a revelation since joining the Blood and Gold three seasons ago has not hidden his intention of seeking new challenge elsewhere after winning everything both domestically and on the continent.
