Hammers talk on midfielder link

juan-cazares_f2e77West Ham have rubbished speculation they are close to agreeing a deal for midfielder Juan Cazares.

The 22 year old – who plays for Banfield on loan from River Plate – was heavily linked with a move to the Boleyn earlier today – but the speculation was killed off by sources inside the club.

Some reports in the South American press claimed the deal was 75 per cent done and were the story also found its way onto prominent Argentinian websites but the suggestion was quickly killed off to ClaretandHugh earlier this evening.

We were told: “We do not need a midfielder at this moment in time and unless somebody goes we have nothing left in the the wages budget.”

Cazares has had a couple of loan spells at Barcelona and is very much an attacking midfielder who it is claimed is agile with good technique and speed.
