West Ham’s Valon Behrami sad after Roma deal collapses

Swiss star promises to give his all for the Hammers

WEST HAM midfielder Valon Behrami has re-affirmed his commitment to West Ham after his desired move to side Roma fell through.

The 25-year-old Swiss international had his heart set for a move to the Italian capital, but when the Serie A giants allegedly only wanted the midfielder on loan rather than permanently, the move fell through.

Behrami, whose young family are now based in Rome, was clearly upset that a deal between the clubs could not be reached, but has promised to give his all for the Hammers cause.

“I am disappointed the deal failed to go through - that is for certain,” he said in The Sun.

“This club has given me a lot of things and helped me when I was injured.

“I never want it to look like I want to leave because it is difficult.

“The club knows I had a personal private problem in my life. I tried to go back to Italy to solve this problem.

“We didn’t find the right solution and I am happy to stay here.

“I never tried to move to any other club in England or Germany or wherever. I am here and I will give 100 per cent for this club and the supporters.”

“In the last three weeks, the manager and the chairman have both helped me a lot because they understood the situation. Of course in football, there is the business side as well.

“We didn’t find the right solution for the club and for me.”
