Transfer news: Younes Kaboul, Bobby Zamora, and more…
Ahh, the delicate touch of Bobby Zamora. Sweeeet.
Whilst the majority of the nation takes at least four cups of tea and a couple of hours repeatedly refreshing Facebook to really hit their stride with the morning chores, impressively driven football hacks are literally sanding down their noses on the grindstone.
Here’s what we know today, thanks to the heroes who work at The Daily Mirror, The Guardian, The Times, and other such meaty pamphlets…
West Ham’s two King Davids – Gold and Sullivan – are so keen to take the club back to its East End roots that they fancy re-signing Barking’s own Bobby Zamora, who spent four rather up-and-downy years at the club in the mid-2000s. A return to ”roots” that is slightly contradicted by them also reportedly keen to snaffle Jo – the Brazilian – from Everton.
In more re-singing news, Younes Kaboul has been rumoured to be in the midst of performing a trick known in the trade as “The Classic Jermain Defoe”, by returning to Spurs from a short stint at Portsmouth. Henry Redknapp has apparently been gnawing his fingers into a bloody stump over the repeated injuries to his delicate back four.
Elsewhere in the world, the Spanish teenager Sergio Canales is making a number of Premier League wallets twitch like a rabbit’s nose – Chelsea, Man City, Arsenal and Man United all look keen. Ryan Babel might yet find himself sobbing in the dugout at Galatasaray.
And Man City are looking to continue the trend of signing midfielders who used to be really good at Arsenal, by taking Mathieu Flamini on loan from AC Milan.
Next on the list: Emmanuel Petit. Presumably.
