Hammers respond to Montero speculation

MonteroWest Ham United have today all but dismissed stories that Sam Allardyce is to make a £4 million move for Ecuador’s World Cup winger Jefferson Montero.

The report in a Sunday newspaper claims the Hammers boss wans to woo the player to Upton Park from Mexican side Monarcas Morelia.

And it adds that a club scout watched the 24-year-old in the recent World Cup warm-up and has been trying to sort a deal since.

However, when ClaretandHugh put the story on our  club source today, the response was immediate and firm: “No more than one per cent interest or chance of getting him if it were stronger.”

He added: “There are many names on our list and we are pursuing some of them strongly.

“We have read the story but to suggest we are keen  would be misleading to the fans and to put the interest higher one per cent would be wrong !”

  1. Any comment from Our Club always seems to come over as Captain Mainwaring (Dad’s Army) like when they announce a consultation, and it has already been decided!

    • A little unfair. What would you have them do consult the fans on how they will consult the fans? They are offering three open day discussions, overseeing the ‘poll’ or whatever with an independent survey firm – showing various images – what else would you have them do? And by the way I’m not part of the club!!

  2. He is quality, attitude sucks more than a little though
