Chief Scout showdown: Henry v Glover

toulouse-martin-braithwaiteFormer Head of West Ham recruitment, Martyn Glover appears to be going head to head with the new head of West Ham recruitment Tony Henry over their mutual interest in a Toulouse player.

Glover left the Hammers to join Leeds in a similar role last summer following Allardyce’s departure but he was quickly reunited with Big Sam earlier this year when he was appointed Head of recruitment at Sunderland with his old buddy.

A story in the Daily Mail  this morning suggests both West Ham and Sunderland are among a number of clubs showing interest in Toulouse forward Martin Braithwaite.

The Premier League sides will be represented by scouts in the stands at Hampden Park on Tuesday when Braithwaite is expected to line up for Denmark against Scotland.

The 24-year-old has been playing on the wing for Toulouse this season and has scored ten goals but his preferred position is as a central striker.

 Braithwaithe has one year left on his contract and wants the chance to play in the Premier League. It is said that Toulouse will listen to offers of around £4million.

  1. No Problem
    Why would anyone who is a forward want to play for Hippo ?
    Why would you want to play in the championship ?
    Why would you not want to play for Slav in th OS ?

  2. Martin Braithwaite sounds Danish through and through

  3. ive got to feel sorry for this Danish guy with an English name who plays in France but wants to play in England. He must be really confused.
