Hammers yet to meet Jelavic valuation

jelHull City manager Steve Bruce has admitted Jelavic is edging ever closer to the exit door as he left him out of the squad that faced Preston on Saturday.

Hull will take a hit on the £7m they paid Everton to sign the 30-year-old in January 2014 but West Ham are yet to meet the club’s valuation according to Bruce, believed to be in the region of £4m.

“I had a conversation with Jelavic, which was only right,” Bruce told the Hull Daily Mail. “How could he play when his head was elsewhere?

“Now let’s see if the two clubs get to the valuation. He has a buy-out clause but they have got nowhere near that. Come Tuesday, I would still expect him to leave.”

  1. 4m for this piece of crap.Dear oh dear.

  2. I see Diame is still playing for them although he could subsistuted after 70 mins on Saturday

  3. Haha,yeah he got the move he wanted,playing for a top six team in the prem,haha 😀

  4. Come on,pls not Jelavic.He cant even hack it in the Championship.Watched him against Wolves & he was dire.Injured alot last year.Already turned us down once before.Arrrghh,anyone just not this tool pls 😉

  5. OMG; this implies that we were mad enough to actually put in a bid! What are they trying to do, scare the living daylights out of us???? But, alas, we all knowTHAT would be the West Ham way!….Read between the lines, and Steve Bruce is desperate ot be shot of him. Won’t do Jelavic any good either. He is at best a mid-table championship player…anything above that would just be frustrating for him and any club he is at, which, prey to God, doesn’t finish up being West Ham!

  6. Haha Sean I thought about that the other day, so much for top 6. Please no not Jelavic he’s like another Maiga we really don’t have to stoop that low do we????

  7. Bournemouth are trying to secure Charlie Austin and even at 15 million would be a better option than 7 million for Jelavic.Sorry I forgot D.S put his foot in it the other day.

  8. Austin is off to Man.Utd according to the bookies,lol.If Jelavic comes to us we really will be shopping from the bargain bucket.What a nightemare! 😉

  9. The Medical could be a stumbling block – he’ll fit right in with that glass knee!

  10. Why are we even looking at this guy.He was out injured lots of last season.He only played just over half Hulls matches.Sorry but this guy is just a waste of the small amount of cash the tightwads have left.

  11. If we are looking for 4th choice Carlton replacement it should be a hungry young striker with something to prove for £4 mil not injury prone has been. waste of money we apparently haven’t got.

  12. Apparently having medical at the moment…. So much for someone with pace lol

  13. This smacks off a signing that doesn’t upset the apple cart, a senior player with reasonable abilities but no ego to pee off his contemporaries when not in the match day squad.
    With Zarate, Sakho, Valencia, Carroll, to choose a blend from he could be useful as an option to play direct when needed, just as big AC may well be deployed in a similar role.

  14. Look out top 4 here we come. What aload of ****. Another injury prone player who mugged us off once before. COBBLERS!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. It shows what the transfer windows about Borini 10 million lol

  16. …….Sincerely hope this deal breaks down.

  17. Ha ha. Looks like hull are finally going to get revenge for us mugging them off with mo Diane.
