Nice looking for big Kolo fee


TimWest Ham’s day-long talks aimed at signing Nice left back Timothee¬†Kolodziejczak appear to be in the balance with the French club believed to be looking for a fee of around ¬£9 million.

ClaretandHugh revealed exclusively this morning that officials from the two clubs were heading into a tough London meeting and it appears that they are still some way apart.

Should talks break down he could tun to Ipswich Town’s Aaron Cresswell with a source revealing: “We hold an interest in the player although West Brom and Fulham are also interested.

A source told ClaretandHugh exclusively this evening: “It’s been a very long day and to be honest we are no further forward.

“As things stand Nice want too much. We will take it as far as we can but there comes a point when a decision has to be made. However, we continue to hope for a breakthrough.”
