Giles Barnes to West Ham
The Newham Recorder claim that Giles Barnes will sign for West Ham for £5.5 million in January. The paper says it is 'already a done deal'.
Barnes almost signed for West Ham in the summer but injuries made Derby reluctant to sell. Saturday's 5-0 thrashing may have convinced Derby manager Billy Davies that he needs to bring in some fresh blood. Selling Barnes may be the only way to finance that.
