Kevin Nolan has snubbed the chance of a move to LA Galaxy where he would team up with one of his best mates in the game, Steven Gerrard.,
Nolan has snubbed the leading American team because he isn’t ready to move away from London at this stage.
And that has also put Bournemouth – – who ClaretandHugh reported exclusively had held talks with him – out of the running to grab the 33 year old who is now being sought as an out of contract player by a quartet of the capital’s clubs.
Crystal Palace, Watford, Queens Park Rangers and Brentford are all keen to talk to the former Hammers skipper who will take his time before deciding his next move.
A friend of the Liverpool-born midfielder told ClaretandHugh the veteran had been approached by both Bournemouth and Galaxy but had rejected the chance of both.
He said:”He’s turned them both down despite being a big pal of Steve’s. He’s not ready to leave London at this stage and will talk to the interested clubs up here.
“The four clubs are Palace, Rangers, Brentford and Rangers but he’s seemingly in no big hurry to make his mind up – he will take his time.”
Nolan saw the remainder of his West Ham contract paid up over the last couple of weeks athough a club source declared: “He received around 75 per cent of what be was due.”
