Bellamy Signs?

The Daily Mail are claiming that West Ham have signed Craig Bellamy for an initial £7.5m, rising to £8m. They are also reporting that Djibril Cisse has plumped for Marseille over West Ham.

The Independent whilst agreeing that the Welsh international had a medical and agreed personal terms on a £70,000-a-week contract claim that the deal is still being worked out. West Ham's reluctance to include Benayoun as part of the deal is the sticking point.

The paper says that Benayoun reneged on a verbal agreement to sign a new club and returned from holiday saying he wanted a clause saying he could move to Liverpool if they bid £5 million. West Ham said no and withdrew the original contract offer whereupon Benayoun said he would never play for the club again.

The Independent say West Ham want a straight cash offer for the player. They want £9 million but will settle for £8 million.
