West Ham To Sign Barnes?
The Daily Mail say West Ham are not interested in signing Darren Bent. Alan Curbishley is looking to bring a striker in on loan but 'the club are unenthusiastic about doing any major business.'
The Sun disagrees that West Ham are not interested in making any signings and say that West Ham have agreed a deal to sign Derby winger Giles Barnes for £5 million. They say the deal has been sanctioned by West Ham chairman Bjorgolfur Gudmundsson and that Derby manager Paul Jewell has agreed the move to raise cash for his own signings.
A number of websites are reporting this as a done deal. I'm always a bit sceptical about stories emanating from The Sun. I guess we only have a week to wait for the truth.
