Hammers stick to guns on Zaza deal


West Ham remain locked in negotiations with Simone Zaza and his advisors this evening as the two sides try to edge towards a deal which will see the Italy international become a Hammer.

As is always the case in these circumstances the social networking systems – Twitter in particular – are alive with stories that the deal has broken down – NOT TRUE!

Both sides want to get the deal done and the personal terms on offer are far in advance of what the player is earning at Juventus.

However – as is usually the case – Zaza’s team are pressing for improvements but the Irons negotiators have already agreed a deal and will resist any late demands to improve it.

ClaretandHugh was told a few minutes ago by a well placed Hammers source: “These tactics are not unusual but there’s no way the club will cave in on the deal already agreed.

“These things crop up at the end of negotiations as a rule and are generally sorted. We will be sticking to out guns. It could go either way.”

  1. Oh don’t spoil the fun Hugh,all the Twitter tw*ts were having fun building up rumours so fans could p*ss their pants & come up with conspiracy theories.

  2. It could be worse Radai we could be reading YET ANOTHER article about the frightening Olympic Stadium & how there are cannibals in them there stands.Good preserve us I must stay away from WHTID.

  3. It’s a give the audience what they want site.The owners know they love a good doomsday story so they provide.The saving grace is that there are another half dozen Hammers site where it is a side issue.The problem is there but it isn’t turned in to something Alan Bleasdale would be proud of.

    • I making you right tone.Four times to the os,four times with my two sprogs,four times not a single problem.Now no one please tell me I have just been lucky because I haven’t,many other friends take their kids & have had not a whisper of trouble.In four matches over 200,000 fans have entered that ground so sticking up a few bad experiences doesn’t cut it for me.But as you so rightly say one story goes up followed by responses of which most that are negative are from plonkers who have never even been to the place.

  4. They don’t call his dad FAGIN for nothing lol. I wonder if he got cruella out of the pound ?
    All I want to know is he going to be bought if he’s a crap waste of space for 24 million ??after the loan ?

    Is that what they get for sitting on their arseoles looking across the table ,
    Is it piles of grapes or piles of dosh ?
    And little jack sitting on the end playing with action man and Cindy in a compromised position !
    Yes , no , yes no , yes , no . The first one that falls asleep is the winner ?

  7. I read something about him being in the ground having his pic taken.More Twitter bolloxs I expect.I hope he will be safe in the stadium,i mean there are all those big nasty men hidden behind seats waiting to hit him or swear at him 🙂

    Why bother go get Bony and Remy,
    But this is the game we like to play,

    All hype

    • Well its official ??
