Jarvis deal won’t tempt Irons

jarvisWest Ham are unlikely to to be tempted into the January market despite making room in the budget via the sale of Matt Jarvis to Norwich.

With £2.5 million in the bank and £40k a week freed up from his wages, the club might have considered  a move but sources inside the club have made it clear that’s highly improbable.

Despite concluding a clever deal, the board are set to keep the cash in their pockets having learned some lessons from the January ‘madness.’

ClaretandHugh was told last night:  “It’s not a place where we want to go given past experience. Where you get loan players better than the ones we have.

Have any of our January past loans really contributed very much? £2.5 million is hardly a fortune and could probably be put to be better use  in the summer.”

  1. Still not convinced Jarvis wasn’t another talent wasted by Sam, like Zarate almost was.

  2. Should have kept him ;; second time I have said it .. He was a good winger and supplied a lot of quality crosses that we are missing today .

  3. If the results aren’t forthcoming then I would say all bets are off in January.IMO Sorry to see Matt go but that’s football these days.I also don’t believe for a moment that A.C is not for sale either.
