Hammers on Lee for Bolton speculation


leeWest Ham claim to have had no contact from Bolton over a possible 93 day loan move for Elliott Lee.

Reports the striker could join former Hammer Rob Hall at the club were greeted with surprise from the Upton Park hierachy.

One told ClaretandHugh: “We’ve heard nothing from Bolton on that one. As far as we know it’s just media talk.

“Mind you they did their brains on Hall who has played one Capital League match this season and managed two goals from 24 appearances last term.”

Reports emerged earlier today that a 93-day loan deal seeming the most viable option.

Bolton want to boost their attacking option after an abysmal start to the season which sees them in second off bottom spot in the Championship.

But the Hammers insist that there has been no move for Lee and our source said: “If he does go out anywhere we will want assurances that he will get regular first team football but there’s been nothing from Bolton.”

    Rob Hall a former rising star and Next Big Thing, had his head turned and left for a brighter future. Many of our supporters were screaming that he should be playing first team football and that he was good enough. Seems like the manager was right that he wasn’t ready, I now doubt if he EVER will be.
    The ideal scenario if Elliot does go out on loan, would be too a Championship side who are doing well and he has the opportunity to play and force his way (through ability) into the side to become a regular.
