West Ham Captain's Agent Can't Shut Up

Last week Alan Curbishley told the West Ham players not to talk to the press. This did not stop Tevez slagging off Alan Pardew at the weekend nor has it stopped Nigel Reo-Coker's agent from continuously trying to engineer the player's transfer away from West Ham by planting stories in the papers.

Tony Finnigan now claims that the West Ham captain has received hate-mail from West Ham fans. Whilst this story may well be true, no-one is under any illusion that this is just his latest attempt to justify a money-spinning move for his client. In fact Finnegan lost no time in turning this story around to Reo-Coker's tenure at West Ham,

"He is under contract and he is happy there but I don't know how long he wants to play in front of boos. We will be sitting down with the manager to talk about him in a clear-the-air meeting. If you got approached by one of the top sides in Europe then of course you would be flattered - but I don't want to talk about something that is hypothetical."

Of course you don't Tony! Kumb today reports how Tony Finnegan earlier this season was accused of engineering Cameron Jerome’s move from Cardiff City to Birmingham City.

"The £3m move eventually went through but prompted one Birmingham City fanzine, Joys and Sorrows, to describe the move as 'smacking of an agent - in this case Tony Finnigan - trying to generate interest in his client and earn himself a few bucks.'"

Now Finnegan is at it again.
