Richards in, Diame out is Irons Deadline Day hope

Warnock enters Diame race

According to the Sunday People today new Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock is set to leap frog QPR & Hull City to sign Mo Diame on transfer deadline day tomorrow. The Eagles would have to meet the £3.5m buy out clause price tag plus be prepared to pay him £50,000 per week or more.  Earlier this week Sam Allardyce was asked about the possibility of Carlton Cole and Mo Diame leaving the club he said ““I expect both of them to be here next week and beyond”

Harry wants Diame

There are renewed rumours coming out of West London today that former Hammers manager Harry Redknapp will be up to his old tricks by making a late bid for Hammers midfielder Mo Diame on transfer deadline day. Hull City have already made a bid under the buy out clause despite Steve Bruce denying it. Hull have yet to come in with a second bid and Bruce did confirm they are interested. One barrier  for Hull could be Diame’s wage demands, It is believed in addition to the £3.5m buy out clause another clause is said to insist he earns £50,000 per week or more in any transfer deal with Diame’s agents wanting as much as £70,000 per week.  We all know Harry loves a bargain but I am doubtful the West Ham board will sell Diame to QPR under his buy out clause but that won’t Harry from trying. Harry Redknapp’s through the car window interview with Sky Sports News on deadline day has become an institution but we await the end of the transfer window to see if we have held on to all our players with baited breath.
