Jlloyd Samuel for West Ham
The People reported at the weekend that Villa's Jlloyd Samuel will be offered a contract by West Ham at the end of the season. The full-back has not started a first-team game since August and last week said he will not be staying at Villa Park.
Bolton and Boro are also apparently keen on the player but the opinion on some of the Villa blogs is that Samuel may fancy a move to West Ham even if we are relegated. Samuel is originally from London and was even on West Ham's books for a while as a youth. In fact Samuel was released by West Ham on the same day as Konchesky and Zamora.
The rumour is that West Ham will offer Samuel a four year deal and a chance to return to London could swing the deal West Ham's way.
