Robert Snodgrass has placed the blame for his West Ham struggles at manager Slaven Bilic, claiming the Hammers boss failed to utilize him correctly at the London Stadium.
The Scottish international joined Championship side Aston Villa on loan on Friday just half a season after his £10.2million move from Hull City to West Ham, where he failed to score in 15 appearances for the Hammers. Since making the switch to Villa, who will have the option to sign Snodgrass permanently at the end of the season, the 29-year-old hinted that he has little desire to return to the London Stadium. "I spoke to the manager there (West Ham) and said to him, 'You wanted me to try and replace Payet, it's not my position'," Snodgrass said in an interview with the Birmingham Mail. "He's signed me for a lot of money at Hull. To get the best out of any player you need to play them in their right position, it's as simple as that." Aug 28 - 5:21 PM

Robert Snodgrass is determined to prove himself at West Ham despite rumors his place in Slaven Bilic's squad could be in doubt.

The Scotland international joined in a £10.2million deal from Hull City in January but struggled to make an immediate impact at the London Stadium. While Snodgrass scored nine goals before leaving Hull halfway through last term, he failed to find the back of the net under Slaven Bilic and started only one of West Ham's final five league games of the season. However the 29-year-old, who has been linked with a move to Brighton, is convinced he has much to offer the Hammers next season. "It's not easy moving to a new club in the middle of the season but I chose to join West Ham above other teams because of their great tradition and fanbase and I'm determined to make it a success," Snodgrass said. "I'm really looking forward to meeting up with the West Ham boys for pre-season and starting again."

Robert Snodgrass has been linked with a prompt exit from West Ham United with newly-promoted Brighton and Hove Albion considering a move for the out of favor winger.

The 2016/17 campaign was full of highs and lows for Snodgrass. The 29-year-old was stellar for Hull City in the first half of the season before joining West Ham in January for £10 million, where he failed to replicate his form and spent majority of his time on the substitutes' bench. And after no goals, just two assists and six months in London, the Scottish international could be on the move again. It is understood that Brighton are ready to make an £8 million bid for Snodgrass, but won't match the initial fee that the Hammers paid to bring the winger to east London. While the proposed move would mean a loss for West Ham, it would mark a reunion for Snodgrass with Albion manager and former boss Chris Hughton. During their two-year spell together at Norwich City, the Scotsman scored 12 goals and provided 10 assists in 67 Premier League appearances.

Robert Snodgrass will be assessed ahead of the game with Leicester City on Saturday after suffering an ankle injury at Bournemouth.

The £7million January signing from Hull had been a doubt during the build-up to the game at the Vitality due to a knee injury he sustained against Chelsea which required ten stitches. Having passed a late test, Snodgrass was named amongst the substitutes, as the returning Antonio was recalled by Slaven Bilic. However, his cameo was almost ended prematurely: "I twisted my ankle and stretched my ligaments but we only had defenders and a centre midfielder on the bench so you have to try to push through that pain barrier for your teammates. But I couldn’t really push off with any force." Snodgrass managed to see out the game, but his hopes of taking a share of the spoils were cruelly dashed when Josh King grabbed his hat-trick deep into injury time to win it for the Cherries 3-2.

Robert Snodgrass could make his full debut at Southampton after making a substitute appearance during Wednesday's 4-0 defeat by Manchester City.

Slaven Bilic could make some changes after his side's midweek defeat, with the most anticipated one the potential full debut of Snodgrass. The Scottish international recently recovered from a muscular injury and made the bench last time out, replacing Sofiane Feghouli in the 64 minutes against Manchester City. Should Snodgrass make the starting XI, the 29-year-old would likely slot into the playmaker role formerly held by Dimitri Payet. Elsewhere, striker Andre Ayew remains on Africa Cup of Nations duty but Cheikhou Kouyate has returned from the competition and is available for Saturday's match at the St. Mary's Stadium.

Snodgrass has signed a three and a half year deal with the London outfit, which will keep him there until 2021.

He scored 13 goals in all in 57 appearances.

According to media reports, Middlesbrough and West Ham have joined Burnley in the battle for the signature of midfielder Robert Snodgrass.

Following Burnley's reported £10 million bid, the Hammers and 'Boro both have submitted offers for about the same value, though the Londoners have offered slightly more. The Clarets and Hammers have both had their offers accepted by Hull, but Aitor Karanka has said that 'Boro are still "working" on the deal. Snodgrass has led Hull through a turbulent season so far, with the Tigers currently sitting 19th in the PL table. New manager Marco Silva is not keen to part with the Scot, especially after Jake Livermore was sold to West Brom recently.

Multiple media outlets are reporting that Hull City have accepted a £10 million bid for Robert Snodgrass for midfielder Robert Snodgrass.

Snodgrass has been the subject of bids from other PL clubs namely West Ham and 'Boro but all previous offers were rejected as they did not meet Hull's valuation of the player. Hull activated a contractual clause to extend the Scot's contract by an extra year just before New Years in an attempt to prevent Snodgrass moving at the end of the season for free after e rejected an offer of a new contract by the club. However, it now looks as if the stricken Tigers are willing to part with their top scorer and playmaker to their rivals.

It has been a familiar script as Robert Snodgrass scored but Hull City fell 3-1 to West Bromwich Albion on Monday in the 20th match of the season for both clubs.

Robert Snodgrass scored his seventh goal of the campaign and was generally effective in putting up peripheral fantasy points as well. His teammates, however, couldn't keep pace as the Scotland international's goal was their only one of the match. After opening the scoring, the Tigers saw Chris Brunt, Gareth McAuley and James Morrison score without reply as they continued on a trajectory that will have them relegated with plenty of the season remaining.

Despite an assist and a goal from Robert Snodgrass, Hull City were unable to hold off Everton and drew 2-2 on Friday at the KCOM Stadium.

Snodgrass has been the best player for Hull this season and once again proved this with an excellent performance against Everton. Hull took the lead after six minutes when Snodgrass delivered a corner that found Curtis Davies who flicked across goal and found Michael Dawson to headed home at the far post. After the goal Everton responded with pressure and found the equalizer just before halftime, as David Marshall rose to punch clear a corner but sent the ball into his own net. When the match restarted Snodgrass was once again in the action, tucking a free-kick into the upper left corner after curling an effort off the bar 10 minutes earlier. Unfortunately for Hull they couldn't hold the lead, as Everton leveled through Ross Barkley when he headed home a Leighton Baines cross just six minutes before the final whistle. The draw moves Hull off the bottom of the table, on 13 points, ahead of a trip to West Brom next Monday.

Hull City have activated a clause in the contract of Scottish midfielder Robert Snodgrass which will keep him at the club for an extra year.

Hull's top scorer this season (7) had reportedly rejected a contract offer and rumours were abound about his future. However, the risk that he would leave the club in the summer for free are now quelled and long term contract talks will resume in the New Year. Manager Mike Phelan said in a press conference ahead of GW18 that he expects the club to hold onto "Snoddy" unless a huge offer is tabled by another club. The playmaker was linked to Aston Villa,West Brom, West Ham, Middlesbrough and Newcastle in recent media reports.

Hull City hero Robert Snodgrass has reportedly turned down a contract offer from the club.

The Scot, who has been among their stand-out performers this term, is apparently unwilling to sign a long-term deal due to the continuing uncertainty at the East Yorkshire club. Snodgrass has six months left to run on his current deal but the club have the option of extending this by a further season. His contract situation also strips the club of any chance of earning a big fee for Snodgrass' services from a club in January, in spite of his 7 goals and 2 assists. Rumours linking him to Celtic for a £4m price tag are the most prominent of the bunch, but the Tigers will surely want to hold onto their marquee playmaker if possible.

Hull City overcame Championship leaders Newcastle United in a penalty shootout at the KCOM Stadium on Wednesday.

The regulation period of the game was dour at best. Between both teams, only two shots were registered on target in all. Hull's chances of progressing looked even worse in the 89th minute as Dieumerci Mbokani saw red for losing his head completely. The man on loan from Dynamo Kiev pushed and kicked at Jamaal Lascelles before lunging forward at him at his head. He may now face a 3 match ban. Meanwhile, the tie spilled into extra time and former Hull man Mo Diame put the Toon ahead. However, the Tigers showed some real grit and equalised a minute later. Henriksen's strike was spilled by the Newcastle 'keeper before Snodgrass knocked it in. Jakupovic amde two saves in the shootout as the Tigers won 3-1. Snoddy, Dawson and Huddleston were all on target as Newcastle missed 3 of theirs. Newcastle's finishing had been poor all night and they had looked the better side with 32 shots. However, their profligacy in front of goal cost them dearly.

It wasn't much but it was enough for a draw as Michael Dawson scored from a Robert Snodgrass free kick for a 1-1 draw.

Robert Snodgrass has been Hull City's best attacker this season by a fair distance. He did just enough on Saturday against West Brom to secure a needed point for,the home side. The results must still be better if City want to stay up but given that Albion has won twice in a row it was a solid point.

Robert Snodgrass yet again fell victim to being the outstanding player for an outclassed side as Scotland lost 3-0 to England.

At least while the result was the same, it all occurred in a different jersey as Snoddy represented Scotland against England at Wembley. Snodgrass proved his fitness again to fans playing 81 minutes while still coming off the back of an ankle injury which was meant to rule him out of this tie. He made a few good touches and continued his usual service with good deliveries to the extent that Danny Rose was kept occupied. Passing to Snoddy in one breakaway would have been the better option for Leigh Griffiths but he didn't utilise his open teammate. Hanley should also have finished a chance put on a plate for him by the Tigers' playmaker. David Marshall sat on the bench for the Scots while Shaun Maloney was not selected for the squad. Andrew Robinson also missed out as he is injured.
