Hammers linked with Nigerian Free agent

Joseph-Yobo-360x225According to Nigerian football site www.sl10.ng West Ham’s Director of Recruitment, Tony Henry, has opened a line of communication with Joseph Yobo’s representatives, including sports agent Sine Batimani, regarding the signing of a former Nigeria skipper who is a free agent.
Tony Henry, who was chief scout at Everton prior to being headhunted by West Ham, is full of hope and enthusiasm that talks between the Londoners and Yobo’s camp go smoothly.
Since the central defender has been inactive for close to seven months, West Ham will offer him a contract if he proves he’s in good physical condition. The 34-year-old has been courted by teams based in the United States of America and Asia after terminating his contract with Fenerbahce in 2014.
Warri Wolves defender Azubuike Egwuekwe was linked with West Ham last month but the transfer failed to materialize.

  1. No No No! Age and seven months of inactivity are liabilities.USA sounds good to me.Surely there are younger talented players available and a fraction of the cost??Nothing personal but we can do better.

      – Errrrr, at risk of stating the bleedin’ obvious – you are aware that the January Transfer has closed and we can only sign Free Agents, right??

  2. Agreed. Why would we want anybody who is 34 years old?
