Carlos Bacca has discussed why he rejected West Ham’s “very good” offer to remain at AC Milan in the summer.

West Ham were understood to have agreed a fee in the region of £25million with AC Milan for Bacca, only for the striker to turn down a move to East London.

The Hammers eventually landed Simone Zaza on loan from Juventus, while Bacca has started all three of Milan’s opening Serie A fixtures, scoring a hat-trick in the opening win over Torino.

Speaking to Spanish outlet Cadena Ser, the Colombia international said: “The offer of West Ham was very good I thought.

“I thought about my family, about how we would fit and problems that a South American soccer player can have in terms of the non-EU passport.”
