Hamilton Accies left back Stephen Hendrie has flown to London to hold talks with West Ham. Hendrie is out of contract at the end of the season and the 20 year old defender could agree a pre contract deal to join in the summer. Accies vice chairman Ronnie MacDonald (again no pun!) last week criticised the Irons, claiming that a transfer fee in excess of £2m had been agreed. He said Hendrie agreed terms but that West Ham did not complete the deal.
Not such a good fifth round FA Cup draw for the Hammers, any Tony Pulis team is one to avoid, and an away tie against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on Saturday 14th of February seems scant reward for all the effort against Everton and to some degree the match against Bristol City.
