Are West Ham Putting All Their Eggs In One Basket (case)?

West Ham United have finally pulled out of signing Scott Hogan from Brentford, the asking price of £15 Million and a late bid from Aston Villa having put the mockers on the deal. It was a lot of money to ask for an injury prone and untried at the top level striker, West Ham are well experience in that area after all! Which inevitably brings up the question of why on transfer day the club are not looking to bolster their striking options?

Payet Departs Enculer Va Te Faire

The sordid saga that was of Dimitri Payet and his agent's making has finally and unedifyingly ground to it's inevitable conclusion, make no mistake the £25 Million Marseille have ended up paying for a player they 'tapped' up is an insult, but nowhere near the insult that Payet has inflicted on those who embraced and adored him in their thousands. Perhaps this over paid and currently over weight player might come down from his cloud and think about all the thousands of kids who had a Payet or number 27 shirt printed.

Snodgrass Chooses Hammers Despite Better Offer From Boro

West Ham United have completed the signing of Robert Snodgrass from Barclays Premier League strugglers Hull City, the attacking midfielder will arrive at the London Stadium for an initial £7 Million fee, potentially rising to £10 Million with add ons. The Scotland international passed his medical and agreed personal terms with the Irons on Friday, and has now become the club's second major signing of the January transfer window following the arrival of Jose Fonte from Southampton.

Snodgrass To Snub Burnely As He Chooses West Ham United

West Ham United appear to have stolen a march on fellow Barclays Premier League club Burnley by matching their bid for Hull City's top scorer Robert Snodgrass, Burnley had an offer accepted on Wednesday and, while both are believed to be in the region of £10 million, West Ham is believed to be the preferred destination for the player who has told friends and family how much he is looking forward to playing at The London Stadium.

Palace To Make Bid For Hammers Keeper

Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce has made enquiries about taking West Ham United's current second choice goal keeper, Adrian Saint Miguel, on loan until the end of the season. Allardyce, who bought Adrian to West Ham while he was manager, is keen to shore up his leaky defence and sees the Spain reserve goalkeeper as a good start in his campaign to restore strength at the back.

Wham Bamm Fonte Man! Hammers Sign Saints Captain

West Ham United have signed Southampton captain Jose Fonte for £8m on a two and a half year deal, the 33 year old Portugal centre back who spent seven years at Southampton made a transfer request with 18 months left to run on his current Saints deal, to some west ham fans this may seem an extortionate amount of money to pay for a player who is well past his sell by date, but those in the know seem to think differently. The transfer includes a possible £1m in add ons and gives Fonte the option to extend his contract for a further year.

Payet Offered 'Insane' Deal

Ex-Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has upped the stakes in the Dimitri Payet transfer saga enormously by arranging for the Chinese super league club Hebei China Fortune that he now manages to offer Payet an 'insane' deal. The terms of which are off the scale, £500,000 per week on a three year deal! That equates to over £75 Million, and will be a test for his home sickness, it will also be a test for other parties involved, particularly Payet's agent and also West Ham's hierarchy. Imagine how Jacques-Olivier Auguste, Payet's agent, feels at the moment?

The Dance Begins Over Payet Transfer Fee

It was obvious from the outset that there would be plenty of posturing from all parties once West Ham star Dimitri Payet decided to throw his dummy out the pram, co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold along with manager Slaven Billic were quick to act like fans and say Payet is not for sale.
