Irons kill Valencia/Chelsea chit chat

enner-vlencia1Enner Valencia is this morning again being reported as a Chelsea target as a replacement for Oscar.

This tale of course first emerged in December and despite it attracting yards of coverage was eventually found to be baseless.

A West Ham senior source said then – and has repeated again during an early morning call from this website – “The agents seem to be warming up a little early this spring!

“In January there was a huge amount of talk in the background but at no stage was there anything close to an offer.

“Until somebody puts something on the table there’s nothing to talk about. You can never rule anything out of in until that happens but Enner is a highly valued West Ham player,

“As has been made clear by David Sullivan himself the club is looking to strengthen up front , not be getting into selling.”

The story this morning claims that Chelsea are keen on the Ecuadorian along with Aaron Cresswell but our source said: “We have made it clear Aaron is locked into a long term deal with an improvement in the pipeline.

“Enner too has no get outs whatsoever in his deal. Everything is entirely in our hands and we are building for the future and Olympic Stadium era.”

  1. I don’t want to lose either of them and I think it would be a bad move for both but money may well talk, they all have a price. If they do go the main thing is we seem to have a pretty good transfer system in place so it could provide for some tasty replacements as long as Sam isn’t around to let them go stale.

  2. is enna v that good??? 25 mill and we should bite there hands off..As for cressie yes he is that good and we should keep him at all costs

  3. Where,s Oscar going ?
