Cole, Behrami & Upson to be Sold
If the Sunday papers are to be believed West Ham will be left with no players by the end of January.
The News of the World claim West Ham will sell Matthew Upson to Liverpool in January and buy Chamakh from Bordeaux.
The Daily Mirror claim that Behrami has stated his intention to leave West Ham. Behrami said,
"I know that the people at West Ham have confidence in me. Maybe one day I will play for a bigger club than them.
"However, in order for me to do so, I will need to be at the peak of my abilities. I just play my football from day to day. There is no point in me talking about my medium-term future when I don’t know what might happen tomorrow."
The Daily Mirror claim that Dean Ashton & West Ham will formally announce the retirement of the striker this week. But then they said that last week as well.
The good news is that Sky say West Ham have made it known that Carlton Cole is not for sale at any price. They claim that Man Utd are set to make a £20 million offer in January, with Liverpool also keen.
