Jose Fonte: West Ham defender agrees deal to join Dalian Yifang for £5m

Jose Fonte last played for West Ham against Crystal Palace in October

West Ham have agreed a deal to sell Jose Fonte to Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang for around £5m.

Defender Fonte, 34, joined the Hammers for £8m from Southampton in January 2017 but the Portuguese has struggled to get a first-team place this season.

He has not featured since the 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace in October.

On Friday, manager David Moyes said Fonte wanted to leave in order to have a chance of featuring in Portugal’s World Cup squad.
