Soucek deal – wrong again


Well you do your best to help but it seems the people who need to take notice are looking in a different direction.

Rumours over Tomas Soucek’s future – based on the incorrect assumption that he is in the last year of his West Ham contract – continued to circulate today.

 Corriere dello Sport, have reported that Inter Milan director Piero Ausilio will be in attendance at Air Albania Stadium later in the day in the hope of seeing Soucek in action in the match between the Albania and the Czech Republic.

The news first broke yesterday and looking for a follow up on that inaccurate story we now have another – all based on the belief that the Hammers will be free to join them.

There is one big flaw in the story, that being that the player signed a new four year Hammers deal back in the summer which was confirmed to us by our leading Hammers source when yesterday’s story hit various media sites.
