Darren Bent has claimed Fikayo Tomori’s deadline-day West Ham rejection is “not a good sign at all” for the club.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former England and Tottenham striker admitted he was surprised that the Chelsea defender did not want to move to east London given their exceptional recent form.
The Telegraph report that the 22-year-old rejected a move to the London Stadium at the last minute after David Moyes failed to provide any assurances over playing time.
After breaking into the Chelsea side last season, the defender has made just one substitute appearance in the Premier League last season.
Asked by Football Insider whether he was surprised he did not move to West Ham, Bent said: “Obviously he didn’t want to go there, he turned it down last minute.
“That’s not a good sign. When someone does that, that’s not a good sign at all. It’s not great.
