No Guti Deal For West Ham

Spanish veteran midfielder Guti who has been on trial at West Ham has announced his retirement instead of pitting his wits in The Premiership for The Hammers.

35 year old Guti had been training with West Ham since his release from Turkish side Besiktas and was available as a free agent.

Guti made over 500 appearances for Real Madrid and was part of their Galicticos squad of players which included Zidane, Ronaldo (The Fat Brazilian one), Beckham, Raul etc and spent 15 years of his career with them.

It looked like he was set to link up with West Ham but it now looks to have gone sour with the player telling Spanish newspaper AS that he is set to retire and take up a coaching role instead.

News coming out this evening is that former Real Madrid star Guti has joined West Hams training camp in Austria.

It was rumoured a few weeks back that Sam Allardyce was interested in bringing the Spanish veteran to Upton Park, it now seems that Guti is on trial after joining the rest of the squad in Austria.

Guti was the first of a string of veteran midfielders mentioned in the press mentioned as a possible signings for West Ham to add some experience and guile in the middle of the park, other players mentioned were Clarence Seedorf and Dejan Stankovic.
