Transfer Roundup

Lots of rumours and speculation this week, but nothing concrete to bring you other than some departures.

Players Out


Pablo Barrera

The Mexican winger has gone back home to join Cruz Azul for an undisclosed fee after failing to impress at West Ham or any of the clubs he went on loan to.

Oliver Lee

The 20-year-old academy product and son of former Hammer Rob Lee has moved to Barnet after loan spells with Dagenham & Redbridge and Gillingham last season.

Possible Players In


Burak Yilmaz

The 26-year-old Turkish international scored 35 goals in 41 games last season and has a €5 million release clause. Rumours are West Ham are battling with Lazio and Tottenham for his services. This guy is prolific so could be a fantastic signing if we pull it off.

Dejan Stankovic

Another player being linked is Inter Milan’s Dejan Stankovic, Sam Allardyce is desperate to add some quality and experience in midfield, after seeing a deal for Clarence Seedforf go south it appears he has turned his attention to classy veteran Stankovic.

Definite No Deals


Grant Holt

The Norwich striker who West Ham have been persistently linked with has now signed a new contract with The Canaries to put this one to bed. Considering the large transfer that would have been involved that’s good news to me.

Kader Mangane

Monster Centre Back Mangane was apparently in London this weekend and reports are that he failed a medical, if true this would be a shame as the man is a beast and would have been formidable in the back four for us.

No other news to bring you at present, deals for Zaha and Clyne could still very much be on but this week should see the signing of at least one new quality player.
