Former Hammer turns down MLS offers

Jonathon-Spector--007Former Hammer and fans favourite Jonathan Spector has extended his Birmingham career after agreeing a new contract. The American has signed a two-year deal that will see him spend a fifth and sixth season at St Andrew’s. He was though to have been offered  lucrative deals from several MLS US teams but he rejected them all in favor of staying with the club he has made 127 appearances for. The 29 year old finished this season having made 26 appearances for Birmingham City.

West Ham bought Spector from Manchester United for £500,000 in 2006 but released him in August 2011 when his contract expired. He played 101 games in a West Ham shirt and scored 3 goals. Spector is best remembered by Hammers fans for scoring two goals in a magical 4-0 win over Manchester United on a snowy night in December 2010.
