Irons may launch new bid for target as club unloads players

West Ham are keeping a new bid for Cardiff City’s Neil Etheridge on the back burner until the situation surrounding Darren Randolph becomes clear.

The Hammers still claim to have their former keeper as their favourite  but given that one offer has already been made for Etheridge it may not be at the short odds it once was.

David Moyes is a fan of Cardiff the keeper and should Randolph not recover completely it’s more than possible that the Irons could try tempting Cardiff again.

The Welsh outfit are in the selling business at the moment having offloaded four players already this window so it’s far from the bounds of possibility that a second bid for Etheridge would be unsuccessful.

West Ham have already explained that the first bid has been turned down and that Randolph’s progress is being monitored.

However, they also explained they are determined to keep channels of communication open with Cardiff.

  1. It is taking a long time to sort out this situation with randolph especially when we have a lot of games coming up in a short space of time.
    Okay david martin is not as bad as roberto but i still don’t have a lot of confidence in him.

  2. Is JACK BUTLAND NOT AVAILABLE? ?YOUNG AND VERY CAPABLE and ENGLISH. No disrespect to Etheridge meant as I have a Philipino WIFE so I have too apear to be on the fence..LOL

    • Ha ha yeah I would stay on that fence if you want to stay married lol.
      Seriously I totally agree Jack Butland will be a great pick up but I don’t think we have the cash which is what is required for a London Club with our Prestige
