Sam can’t see anyone leaving.. ah here comes Hull


Sam-AllardyceSam Allardyce’s half assurances that he expected no departures from the club before the window closes look a little frail this morning.

The manager said at his press conference yesterday: “At the moment I can’t see anyone going the other way.”

The comment came after he claimed there was money in the budget for one more quality player.

Soon afterwards stories were doing the rounds that West Ham and Spurs were interested in Alex Song.

And despite the manager’s comment about it being unlikely anybody would be leaving rumours then arose that Hull City had moved for Mohamed Diame.

ClaretandHugh was able to confirm earlier this morning that was the case and it’s clear another offer could be on the way at the trigger price of £3.5 million.

Ah the joys of the summer transfer market – sometimes it seems the left hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing – even if its the one of them may be that of someone directly involved.

    But why would Diamé want to go to Hull?

  • philtheiron says:

    Not sure what this article is about really. The rumours and speculation about Diame is nothing new. Last week it was qpr making a bid now it’s hull this week. Last year it was the mousers etc, etc.

    Like it has been stated before by BS and the club, we don’t want to sell him and he isn’t going anywhere. Nuff said!

    • The article is about the fact that yesterday morning Sam said no one was going out whilst at the same time Hull were bidding and may again. The Hull bis is now on record at the site

  • ennate says:

    I can’t see Diamé wanting to go to Hull even if the release clause is triggered.
