Manchester United’s Ashley Fletcher has completed a permanent move to West Ham United.
Having enjoyed a successful loan spell at Barnsley last season, Fletcher’s earned a big transfer to West Ham and I can’t say I am surprised to see him leave Man United given that opportunities would have been extremely limited.

Following the announcement of his move to West Ham, Fletcher sent the following message to United and the fans thanking them for everything the club has done for him.
Thankyou to all the staff, players and fans at @ManUtd and @bfc_official for developing me as a player and person for the last 8 years! 👍🏽

I wish Fletcher the very best of luck. He never really lit it up with our U21s but proved himself to be a decent prospect on loan at Barnsley. The fact West Ham have signed him is indicative of that talent and I hope he can go on to be a superb striker – good luck Ashley.
