Irons caught in Moses gazumping raid

MosesWest Ham have been forced to move very quickly for Nottingham Forest winger Michail Antonio after an unnamed club moved in on Victor Moses.

The Hammers were close to clinching a a year’s loan deal in excess of £5 million which was made up of £70k a week in wages and a £2.5 million loan fee.

But ClaretanHugh  received a phone call a few minutes ago explaining that the club – whilst not giving up on the deal – had been forced to go back to Forest as “an unnamed club cam in bidding to gazump us.”

It’s a typical close to deadline situation and the latest word from inside Upton park is that talks aimed at making the exciting Forest winger a Hammer are continuing.

The Hammers have increased their first £5 million bid of a few weeks ago to £7 million but that the talking is continuing.

ClaretandHugh was told: “All options are still open but we are not alone in our interest for Moses. A club is trying to gazump us ”

  1. West Brom.

  2. This is what you ffing get for delaying, I am beginning to have my doubts about the people that are negotiating these deals..

    • How long has the chance of signing Moses on loan been available..? You don’t just pick up a phone & do a deal in 10 mins.

  3. Ffs calm down John,lol 😀

  4. My moneys on Everton. They’ve done it to us enough times in the recent past.

  5. Anyone surprised? What a load of b0llocks.

  6. exwhuemployee on twitter has been saying that spurs were a rival to sign him since yesterday. And also that Collins is being offered out to clubs against his will as he does not want to leave

  7. Probably not helpful to publish the financial details earlier in the day. Why can’t the club just keep quiet and get deals done. Muppets!

  8. Seems like all the galumphing is going on here, between all the sites, trying to claim they were first,

  9. Might work in our favour with Forrest taking our bid on their winger now,
    Most on this site were moaning earlier about the cost WHY I DONT KNOW
    I would like both but I am gready but prefer owning a player and at £7 million he could be a good buy,
    With Song and Jelavic deals also looking done could be a nice end to the transfer window

  10. Antonio, Jelavic and Song would do me. Moses would be a useful addition for the season but not at any price. We should give Jarvis more chance to prove himself. I think he was written off far to quickly by Sam

  11. Jarvis,nah,not for me Canchaz.Had enough chances,been a right let down in my opinion.

  12. canchaz are you on the happy baccy,
    Must be all that Scouse at the weekend,
    Things looking good for a change must be shut down on wetpants,oops forgot Jelavic that must started a feeding frenzy

  13. Tyson just think of him as a 4th back up to our other options the same as Jelavic,
    If we could get £5 million for him let him go but other wise let Alfitano go Slav,s not going to use him anyway

  14. This suits the porn pedlars perfectly …. ” we nearly did this deal and that deal .”” It is manufactured rubbish . We have had 2 months to sort it out but had no intention of doing so will be left with the dregs that are left over …

  15. This is what happens when u try and be a effen cheapskate, u have to come back to the table cap in hand like a effen beggar. And Belize you have been a tosser u have to pay more. Faaaaaark can someone tell whoever is negotiating on our behalf that’s what happens. Don’t be a dick and pay the right dollars. Faaaark my hairy black asssshole a 6 million dollar bid on a at the time 10 million dollar player is an insult to both Chelsea and Victor not to mention embarrassing. Now becoz of the situation its risen to 15 mill. I still maintain if we had offered 9 mill, with add ons we would have him in our side today. But no our brilliant negotiating team is off playing with the fairies somewhere

  16. Faaaaaaark these guys are waaaaaankers 3 mill for jelovic ur faaaarking kidding ain’t u??? That effffen has been or really never was ain’t worth a **** full of ice cold snow. Why do we continually do this??
    Faaaaaark all these years a member even tho l have only seen one game live, I still gotta see all this ****. This stupidity so close to our move may just see us fail to hold onto our Premier League status as we move to OS.


  17. Other sources also claiming it is spuds, I hope they get him, other than as an impact sub when we are chasing a game he is a liability, the game passes him by, maybe Pochettino can work some magic or maybe Levy just wants to screw us over for Adebayor either way I hope its true and he goes to the spuds, they can add him to their extensive overly paid players contingent.
