Gold fuels striker signing excitement

Gold arms up in airDavid Gold has giving impetus to the growing excitement surrounding the possible signing of AC Milan’s Carlos Bacca.

It is becoming increasingly likely that the 29 year old Colombian international is set for a move to east London.

Although names are still being kept under wraps there seems little doubt he is becoming the main man.

The Hammers ‘Insider’ told the official site that Gokhan Tore is set to be officially confirmed next week and a club has received a bid for a striker with all sources claiming Bacca is the player involved.

ClaretandHugh has covered the story extensively this morning (Sat) and given all the reasons why Bacca is looking very likely to join.

Now Gold has fuelled hopes by going on public to confirm that two deals are close by tweeting that two signings look to be close .

He declared: “Two new signings are close but remember they are not done until they are done. dg”

  1. I will just wait for the late intrusion of a side probably as small as Southampton to come in and offer what the players want and whisk him away,to score against us next year,
    Then read how he wanted more then we could afford,
    Why would any player for instance Pied choose playing for Southampton before a top London team ?
    Or play in the Championship for a relegated team before us ?

  2. bacca at 29 may get a couple of seasons out of him would be no sell on profit

  3. If he scores vital goals for us in the couple of seasons you give him, he’ll be worth it . Who really cares about a sell on fee as long as he helps us win trophies. I really don’t get this sell on fee fixation. He ain’t even here yet and some folks are wondering how much we can sell him for. Amazing!
