Harry has last laugh on West Ham striker target

jotaFormer West Ham manager Harry Redknapp appears to be close to signing Hammers target Jota

Jota is currently at Birmingham City’s training ground finalising his move from Brentford, the Birmingham Mail claims.

Redknapp has agreed to pay Brentford an initial £6million fee for the Spanish playmaker, a deal that could eventually rise to a club record £8million. Jota returned from a loan spell at Eibar to fire 12 goals in 23 appearances for the Bees during the second half of last season and has attracted the attention of several Premier League clubs including West Ham.

Harry Redknapp is set to produce another famous deadline day signing by bringing former Hammer Alex Song to Birmingham. Song has travelled to the midlands to complete a move from Rubin Kazan

  1. Nice one. Harry does it again…. and again… and again… and again. Anyone remember Hayden Foxx? Or Stetoslav Todorov? Or Gary Charles? No? They must have been good. H. signed them… several times. Strange that? Perhaps his dog likes Alex Song now too? Good luck Birmingham! You’re going to need it.

  2. They have £6m now but couldn’t get Snodgrass.
    Jota wants to stay i London and is creative player £6m £30k in wages what was point of selling Feggo and Loaning Snod while paying part wages and to be left thin w only 1 natural RW and lack of creativity.
    We should match bc he would come here if choice we where is 1st choice but Brentford don’t want him to go for free and he won’t sign contract

  3. I was chatting to a Brentford mate about Jota.He said he really likes him & is one of his favourites but he said he aint no Premier League player.I dont know myself but he watches him week in week out.

    • Could be true but never truely know without a chance. Some thought the same about Antonio and he is our best player game in game out.
      Worth a shot especially with no other alternatives at there and don’t have depth on RW and #10 and need creativity. 1 older then when Antonio made the move and w his Family set to move to London he would be settled. Think its worth a go.
      I would have have Jota over Wilshere or Mirallas

  4. West Ham have lost the plot…. We couldn’t sign Harry’s dog now ….we are now a joke club!…. official😟

    • Lol give it a rest Bobby youre doing my nut in.You have said more or less exactly the same thing about 5 times already.
      Youre starting to make my concrete curdle 😂😂

  5. Another sensationalist headline sean?
    The fact of the matter is we probably don’t want him.

  6. I don’t want to upset rads but in my opinion they are making the club look silly with loan moves that they know wont be accepted but by doing that they can say they have trired I’m pretty shocked with there refusal to spend money I mean jota may not be up to it in the prem but for six mil its Worth the risk especially with the money they have wasted on other loan moves ..12senior players have left and we have brought in 4 one of which is a free and the other a loan ..with a net spend of 4millon in 2 seasons is that a club that wants to go to the next level …???

  7. This is the new level !! More flights of stairs to walk up at the athletics track 😂😂
    You weren’t expecting 50 – 60 million pound players was you !!
    Sully,s in North Korea as we speak negotiating a strike on the OS to divert all the attention from sakho,s Laughing stock shambles and pocket the insurance to fund some new loans😂
    Joking aside I just want to watch some football , I’ve had more than enough of the doom and gloom regardless who,s right or wrong !
    9-10 bonds to go tfft 😴

  8. How the fek can hours turn to bonds ?? 😕

  9. Intl break is depressing they will make use by getting Nobes and Zab some motorised scooters to get round on and look in to Harts Left Eye sight.
    And maybe get a Jokanovic or Mancini here they can blow bubbles and multi task.
    Be a long few weeks waiting for our first Home gown against arguably the 2ndst toughest team we have aged beside Man U so far
