West Ham have shared some big news this morning but it seems they may have unintentionally revealed something else a bit too early.
The Hammers confirming the appointment of Manuel Pellegrini as the club’s new manager on a three-year deal this morning, landing the former Manchester City boss to succeed David Moyes.
However, in the pictures that accompanied the news, it seems that West Ham may have lifted the lid on their new kit and the images show the back of what appears to be the home shirt for the 2018/19 season.
Eagle-eyed fans were quick to spot it and have now given their reaction to the leak, with opinions being split – as they always are with the jerseys for a new season.
Sharing their views on Twitter, West Ham fans responded to the images in their usual style – though we’ll have to wait a little while longer to see the full reveal.
No blue sleeves. Cheers Umbro
So the front will be all claret with the badge and Betway on it. No room for any other flashing.

Looks similar to the 09/10 shirt at least from the back.

If the sleeves are claret the red tyre sleeve sponsor patch will look so bad!
