Third Matt Jarvis Bid Rejected

Wolves have rejected another West Ham bid of £9.5 Million for winger Matt Jarvis.

West Ham increased their last offer by a further £500k from the last rejected bid.

You can’t accuse Wolves of not playing hard ball can you? Usually when teams go down Premier League clubs can grab a bargain, but Wolves are having none of it and want top dollar for all their prized assets.

Jarvis is understood to be very keen on a move to West Ham and negotiations with the player will not be a problem once a fee with his club can be arranged. I can’t see this not going through as Wolves are holding out for £10 Million so it’s a matter of haggling over £500k now.

Natural Width

I think Matt Jarvis would be an excellent signing for us and would provide natural width, pace, dribbling and crossing ability that we haven’t had since Matty Etherington was on form. We need to be supplying our front men with quality balls to get on the end of and Jarvis will provide those in spades.

The last few seasons we have had too many central players out wide who have tended to tuck inside all the time and give us a real lack of width, so hopefully this deal will get sorted as Jarvis would give us some real width which we will need in the Premiership.

Terrible News

I almost spat my coffee out earlier when reading on that Sam Allardyce is chasing Tal Ben Haim!

He was outstanding for Bolton under Big Sam which prompted Chelsea to bring the Isreali defender to London, however he has been dreadful ever since and Portsmouth couldn’t get him out of their club with a crowbar!

Transfer News

I understand Konate is still awaiting a permit before he can complete his transfer. Other deals for Loic Remy and Clint Dempsey are dead as a doornail.

Royston Drenthe, the Dutch winger who was on loan at Everton from Real Madrid last year, has been offered a contract by us as he is currently available on a free transfer and would be a very shrewd bit of business if we can get it done.

The new season has come round very quickly for me, I think I was getting too involved with the Olympics so took my eye off the ball slightly and the first game of the season has sneaked up on me! Anyway I can’t wait for Saturday and hope for a bit of revenge over Villa! COYI!
