Irons talking to FOUR left backs


OlssonWest Ham are currently in talks with FOUR left backs as they bid to solve their problem position.

ClaretandHugh can confirm that Norwich City’s Martin Olsson is high on the wanted list after we revealed this afternoon that young Frenchman¬†Timothee Kolodziejczak is also in talks.

The other two names are a closely guarded secret but we have learned that the third player on the list is a highly rated Portuguese star whilst the fourth remains a mystery.

A well placed Upton Park source confirmed that the club was “bidding” for four players in the position.

He added: “Things take time and we are not going to pay over the odds because our budgets don’t allow for that.”

    Has been a problem position, so and decent left back would be a welcome addition! My preference would be Olsson as he has previous experience in the Premier League, but the young Frenchman looks a good bet also!

    Olson would be good signing and would likely get a game too since he fits the mold of having played for Sam allardyce before and as we all know allardyce loves tried and tested former players and they all love him. It’s easy to get the best out of players when they have earnt your loyalty. Olson came through into the Blackburn team under alladyce a few years back
