Report: Jarvis in Norwich rock bottom deal

JarvisNorwich City have tonight being reported as having agreed a rock bottom £2.5million deal for winger Matt Jarvis.

The story is reported in the Mail Online and means the Hammers have suffered loss of £8.25 million on a player brought in from Wolves by former manager Sam Allardyce in 2012.

But it means the Hammers now have around £40k in wages they could use in the January transfer window plus cash in the bank for a loan or transfer fee.

The Hammers sources used by ClaretandHugh have always insisted that players will have to be sold for manager Slaven Bilic to buy and the Jarvis deal – when confirmed – would be the first brick in that wall.

It’s being reported that the winger – despite being out for the past month with a knee injury – has been offered a four year deal at Carrow Road.

  1. Take it and move on,he picks up injuries all the time now and although we have lost money
    Hippo never got the best out of him and now his race has run,
    Go with our blessing and all the best for the future,

  2. Good news for the player and West Ham, he didn’t really get a chance under BFS and his career stalled and he became a peripheral figure – yet another player who got screwed up by BFS.

    A good chance to revive his career at Norwich – good luck to him!

  3. Never got a chance Michael???

    He made 78 appearances in 3 seasons. Producing the most PL crosses in his first season.

    Slav gave him a go, also didn’t fancy him, hence he’s going and good luck to him.

  4. Best solution for both parties, he never lived up to the hype & £10m+ price tag. no point keeping him on our books if he will never play, take the financial hit & move on. not sure what the loan deal with norwich included but this will free up some ca$h for transfer window.
