West Ham fans fuming as Anthony Scully leaves club on permanent basis

Lincoln City have confirmed the permanent signing of striker Anthony Scully from West Ham United on Monday – and Hammers fans have reacted to the news on Twitter, with many fuming that it is not just a loan move.

Scully, 20, has been on fire for West Ham’s Under-23 side this season. Before the start of the season, Ireland Under-19 international Scully had scored just one goal and failed to create any more in his 21 appearances for the reserves.

But this season, he has been unstoppable. Scully has netted 14 goals in 16 games – even netting twice in the EFL Cup during a 5-4 win over Newport County. He has also created five more goals in assists.

West Ham were looking for a striker towards the end of the January window and although they brought in Jarrod Bowen from Hull City, they failed to land a player who can rival Sebastian Haller. Bowen is naturally a winger.

Albian Ajeti and Michail Antonio are back up for Haller but all three have hardly shown enough to get West Ham out of danger. That has seen Scully been touted to get a chance in the side and give the Hammers the goal threat they desperately need.

But he has now moved, permanently, to Lincoln. A loan move would have made sense, but Hammers fans are absolutely livid that the striker has left the club beyond the summer – signing an 18-month loan deal with the League One club.
