Adrian: West Ham goalkeeper will miss Swansea City game

West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian has suggested a return to Real Betis this summer “makes sense.”

The Spaniard joined West Ham five seasons ago, but is no longer their clear first choice, only playing half of their Premier League games last season.

Adrian, 31, would be open to a switch back to Betis, where he played for the B team between 2007 and 2012, and the first team in 2012-13.

He told Deportes Cope Sevilla: “I have to sit down with [Manuel] Pellegrini, but the option of going home is always there.

“Of course, I am aware of all the rumours, but the fact remains that Betis still have a goalkeeper and I have to deal with my own future at my club.

“The idea is one that appeals to me because Betis will always be home for me and it is clear to me that if the time comes, we should sit down and talk – it makes sense.

“After spending 16 years at the club I have a strong relationship with many people at Betis, but there is nothing official, no meetings and right now I am on holiday.”

The move could be facilitated by current Betis keeper Antonio Adan’s potential transfer to Sporting Lisbon.

Adrian’s contract at West Ham expires next summer.
