Cardiff Jarvis wage share makes “zero sense”

matt-jarvis-west-ham-united_3054643Matt Jarvis is set to stay at Upton Park despite Cardiff City’s attempts to take him to the club on loan.

The Hammers have reacted to stories linking him with the club making it clear that as things stand the winger will stay where he is.

A source told ClaretandHugh: “It’s correct that Cardiff have asked to take him but the terms aren’t good enough for us to do the deal.

“Cardiff want to pay half his wages but that made zero sense to us given that we could be left short on numbers at some stage.”

However should the Welsh club to come back with an improved offer a deal could still be done but that doesn’t look likely.

  1. With Vaz Te gone,Morrinson not in the squad why would we want to let him go any where,BFS spent a club record on him and he is still that player but for some reason BFS does not fancy him any more,yes we have Alfitano now and we are some time playing a diamond,well on paper any way,on his day he has so much pace and delivers the sort of ball AC delivered last weekend,
    At the moment I can not make out our transfer policy
    Is it still young players under 28,value for money,better than we have in the squad now,
    Or is it over 30 as slow as our captain to make him look good,BFS scout or himselfs choice only,or any other way to stick his fingers up at us dumb southerners ?

  2. It’s a pity that a deal couldn’t have been done.
    We paid a hell of a lot of money for this player and I have been shocked as to how far off the finished article he was for a £10mill outlay.

    When he firsrst arrived he had pace but continued to run very fast into cul de sacs before delivering little floated crosses in the general direction of our strikers that were no use to anyone. His defence was poor and his tracking back almost non existent.

    Fast forward to this season and nothing much has changed. It is a major disappointment that Jarvis hasn’t developed in the time he has been with us.

    This is not the first time there has been transfer/loan talk about the player. Imo I believe he is part of the policy of removing the dead wood ahead of our summer signing policy.

    I believe we have made great strides in this direction already and I personally can’t wait for the summer to see who we will bring in to move the club forward. COYI!
