Whilst all reports suggest Parker's transfer to West Ham is nearly in the bag Nigel Reo-Coker's agent is suddenly setting his sights a little lower. Only a couple of days ago Tony Finnegan was boasting that Reo-Coker would reject Sp@~s for Arsenal.
Well it seems that perhaps no clubs are that eager to sign the West Ham captain. At least that is all that we can surmise from the fact that Finnigan is now reduced to begging for offers,
"Sam Allardyce knows how to get in contact with Nigel and we would welcome a call. If Sam said he wanted to speak, Nigel would be on the train in a shot. It would be very interesting to see what his plans are for Newcastle."
Another rumour that has begun to emerge is that West Ham are keen to sign Everton's Mikel Arteta. Selling Arteta would be an unpopular move by Everton as he has been the fans' player of the season two years running now. So it seems a bit dubious but would be an excellent signing if Eggy and Curbs can swing it.
