Dzemaili? “It’s news to us” say Hammers


BlerimWest Ham have strongly denied that they are attempting to buy Napoli midfielder Blerim Dzemaili.

Spurs have been linked with the Swiss international but morning reports suggested the Irons are ready to get involved in the bidding process.

The  28 year old worked under Sam Allardyce when he was manager at Bolton which may have helped the speculation

However, inquiries by ClaretandHugh this
afternoon suggest that  there is very little in the rumour.

We were told: It seems a case of find a player the manager knows and let your imagination run wild. This is all news to those inside the club and unlikely at best!”

    I hate all these rumours, I should know by now to take them with a pinch of salt.

    I read about WH linked with whoever and think, that’s a ambitious audacious move, only to read that the player is going to sign for someone else.

    Let’s not get stuck struggling to sign players in the scramble of deadline day.

    Let’s off load ASAP the players we all know, who need selling, loaning and sadly in some cases giving away, to free the wage cap.
