West Ham Seek Loan Deals

The West Ham board, gracious as ever, today are trying to deflect all criticism over Anton's sale by blaming it all on the player. The board claim that Ferdinand was demanding more than £50,000 a week.

The Independent say that West Ham pointed out to Ferdinand that he wasn't a first team regular so didn't deserve it. I wonder how regularly you have to play to become a first team regular?

The paper also say that West Ham are trying to secure two loan signings. Nani has identified the Marseilles defender Gael Givet and the Paris St-Germain striker Peguy Luyindula. Both French clubs would, however, prefer to negotiate permanent deals.

Mixed feelings here. £7M for Ferdinand, if that's the correct figure, is a good bit of business. There does, however, remain the fact that the board stated, when they took over the club, that their intention was to build a team with the products of it's academy at it's core. They went on to say that gone were the days where we'd sell the players who break through from Tony Carr's fine tutelage. This sale represents a break of that promise. It's this that I'm most disappointed with. Why should we now believe that Noble, Tomkins, Sears, Collison et al are going to be flogged in time too?
