Hammers on midfielder link


Bernard-Mensah-ready-to-face-FC-PortoWest Ham have this morning rubbished stories they are tracking Ghanian midfielder Bernard Mensah.

The 20-year-old midfielder is currently at Portuguese club Vitoria De Guimaraes who have also had interest from Juventus in a part-ownership deal.

Stories that Upton Park scouts have been watching the player regularly in the past couple of months and a summer move was in the offing were received with astonished scepticism.

Mensah has played 20 games in the Primeira Liga so far this season and our source said: “This is a new one and there is no interest.”
