Hammers chase Serie B ace, Man City to poach long-term Man Utd target
The latest transfer gossip, rumours and damned lies
If West Ham get their way, this young chap will fill the angry, hate-filled void left by Craig Bellamy. More on that later – here’s the rest of the movers and shakers in Transferland today…
Jimmy Bullard to Hull
After reported interest from Arsenal, Bolton, Middlesbrough and Sunderland, Sky Sports claim Hull have agreed a £5m fee with Fulham, and the Tigers now face the task of persuading the London lad to move to Yorkshire.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: Fulham didn’t try very hard to keep their best player, did they?
Emile Heskey to Aston Villa
It looked like Emile William Ivanhoe Heskeywas all set to join former club Liverpool, but Villa believe they have secured the services of the proven Premier League hitman
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: Rafa has said he is not interested in parting with big money (£4m-ish) for Heskey, so it looks like Villa’s £3.5m bid may have sealed it.
Miguel Veloso to Manchester City
Sporting’s 22-year-old midfielder has been on Sir Alex’s radar for some time, but City are said to have tabled a £19m bid for the much-hyped Portuguese.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: Interested parties may also have to pay a £28m get-out clause on Veloso’s contract, and only one club in th eworld is stupid enough keen enough to do that.
Savio Nsereko to West Ham
According to The Independent, Hammers club execs have been in Italy for the past two days thrashing out a £10m deal for Brescia’s German striker Nsereko.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: West Ham should definitely reinvest their Craig Bellamy money, but is Serie B the place to shop?
