  1. So what is the word? Is it actually in motion and happening?
    Or is it all rumours and speculation?

    • Sporting said we never placed a bid on him to attract late offers from clubs, but it seems like we have more or less secured a 30 Million plus add-ons totaling around 38 million euros which should be accepted. Plus he has told the club he wants to join west ham!

  2. Okay brilliant 🙂 thank You.

  3. Nice one very excited about this COYI !!!

  4. Not as far along as the report would make us believe

  5. By the sound of it I think we’re safe to say – who knows – your guess is as good as anyone else’s!

    • … but a couple of points – having listened to a couple of interviews given by the Dave’s I thought the plan this year was to go for players with Premiership experience!

      Plus, a hobby-horse of mine, does he speak da lingo?

  6. They did but if a class act like Carvalho becomes available then you can’t hold them to the letter . That’s just being pedantic. COYI X

  7. C&H has been my go to website for many yrs and this is the first time I have ever posted. Can’t say how I know but he will sign next week. Take what I say at face value or not, but for those who do, enjoy the good news! IRONS!!!
