De Costa In, Savio Out
West Ham have announced that Savio has been sold to ACF Fiorentina with the club receiving an undisclosed fee (which The Telegraph say is £5 million) and Portuguese centre-back Manuel Da Costa in return. West Ham have also retained 50 per cent of Savio's sell-on value in the future.
Savio has reportedly been unhappy with life in England. In recent weeks the club have been saying that he was suffering from a virus but it seems that he has been finding it increasingly difficult to settle at West Ham.
The arrival of 20 year old, Da Costa, a Portuguese Under-21 international defender, seems to herald the departure of Upson or Collins in the next 24 hours. Hopefully a striker will then be on the way in.
