Tevez & Mascherano Sign Permanent Deals
West Ham United have confirmed that Tevez and Mascherano have signed permanent deals with the club.
The official web site reports that,
"The pair have been signed for an undisclosed fee and put pen to paper on permanent contracts with the club this afternoon. All other aspects of the transfers will remain confidential and undisclosed."
This should put paid to rumours that because of Media Sports Investments supposed contacts with Abramovich the Argentinians were coming to Upton Park for a season in preparation for a move to Chelski next season. However the "confidential and undisclosed" parts of the contracts will obviously increase speculation about a possible buy out of the club by Media Sports Investments.
The club website also says that both players "will be available for selection when Hammers return to Premiership action against Aston Villa next week." The club will make also make a further announcement later regarding the official unveiling of both players. With both players involved in the Argentina and Brazil game at the weekend they are unlikely to be unveiled at Upton Park until next week, possibly on Tuesday.
