West Ham Transfer Rumours
The Sun claim that West Ham expect to sign Derby midfielder Giles Barnes for about £5m today, "The clubs were last night thrashing out a fee — around £5million — for the left midfielder, 19, who is on standby to complete talks."
The Daily Star say that Reading's Nicky Shorey will join West Ham on Friday - but only if the Hammers make a new bid of at least £6m. The Star also believe that Everton are attempting to sign West Ham target Stephen Appiah.
The Daily Telegraph say West Ham are understood to be monitoring the movements of former player Joe Cole after his reported difference of opinion with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
The Independent say that West Ham are one of only three clubs to be in profit in this transfer window, to the tune of 0.15 million.
