West Ham are still unable to find a loan or permanent deal for Matt Jarvis.
The £10 million winger would be allowed to move on if the club could find a buyer but we understand even those clubs who have expressed a loan interest are unwilling to cover the player’s wages in full.
With Modibo Maiga back at the club and Kevin Nolan in the final season of his contract the club are keen to recoup wages to bring in new players.
But Jarvis’ dip in form isn’t encouraging any serious offers from the Premier League and the club is hoping that some good pre-season excursions may encourage interest.
The player has expressed his enthusiasm to work under the new boss as he bids to kick start his Hammers career but the club is open to offers.
Nolan meanwhile has been training seriously hard and one training ground source said: “He’s lean and hard. He’s really been at it – don’t rule him out as a serious impact sub type player in his last season.”
However, as reported yesterday on ClaretandHugh, he remains another the club would allow to move on if he could find the right deal
