West Ham in the Papers

The People have caught up with the rest of the world in reporting that Eidur Gudjohnsen is staying at Barcelona dashing West Ham's hopes of signing him.

The People also say that Bobby Zamora is on West Ham manager Alan Curbishley's hit list of players he wants out of Upton Park in January.

Zamora, Callum Davenport, Nigel Quashie and Pantsil will all be sold as he looks to trim his 33 man squad and cut down on the club's massive wage bill. Axeing that quartet will save the club close to £500,000 a month and will also raise around £2 million in case Curbishley decides to buy (strange maths - Zamora has got to be worth at least £5 million on his own).

The News of the World names the same four players. They say owner Gudmundsson has insisted Curbishley must cut down on the senior squad so that the club can afford a new stadium.

However if Curbs sells he may be able to buy. Bent and Shorey are top of Curbishley's wanted list and the Hammers would also be interested in luring Eidur Gudjohnson.
