Leroy: Moses? Yes please…Jelavic? No thanks!

I have mixed views on the two signings which the Hammers appear ready to make! Victor Moses is a very good player and will bring a lot to the team  – even at over £5 million for the season which Hugh is reporting. It’s  good business and I’m looking forward to seeing that one completed. […]
