West Ham SIgn Joorabachian!!
West Ham have persuaded Kia Joorabchian to drop his High Court claim against the club for £7.1 million. As part of the settlement Joorabchian will act as a consultant for West Ham on future transfers, for which he will be paid a fee. In this way it is likely that Joorabchian will recover the money he says he is owed in the next few years.
Arbitration proceedings by the FA between West Ham and Sheffield United begin on Monday.
Joorabchian's employment by West Ham on the eve of the arbitration proceedings is a huge coincidence. Sheffield United have often hinted at evidence that Kia Joorabchian has against West Ham. I guess Joorabchian won't now be appearing for the northern club.
