Twitter was sent into frenzy last night after Bet Victor suspended bets on Adama Traore to West Ham.
West Ham fan Jamie Norwood tweeted Bet Victor asking for a price on Adama Traore moving to West Ham.

The sports betting company then replied, telling him that bets were suspended.
Hi Jamie. Looks like he's on his way to WHU so we won't be offering, thanks.

West Ham United are in the market for a new speedy winger and Adama Traore fits the bill as that profile of player.
However, there will be undoubted question marks over the Middlesbrough winger’s end product.
In 32 games for Boro last season, the 21-year-old managed no goals and only contributed with one assist.
The former Barcelona youngster had a similar record at Aston Villa the year before and he has been reported as having attitude problems in the past.
The former Spain under-19 man had a decent game against West Ham but similarly to the majority of his campaign, he could not provide a decent cross, pass or shot to finish his dribbles.
Middlesbrough could be willing to sell Adama Traore this season as they prepare for a year in the Championship but that depends on whether Garry Monk wants to keep him.
Bet Victor, however, seem convinced that Traore is on his way to West Ham.
