Behrami: Come and Get Me
Valon Behrami has done the decent thing and blamed his wife for his desire to leave West Ham. It seems to be becoming a trend for footballers that when they want another big money move they blame their wives, claiming that they are homesick.
Here is Behrami's plea for Roma to coma and sign him,
'There is interest in me from Roma, but nothing concrete so far, and so I'm still at West Ham. I would have no problem playing for Roma despite being ex-Lazio. I am a professional, and I always give my best.
My daughter Sofia is now 18 months old, and it is not easy to bring a child up in London. Besides, Elena does not feel happy. She does not have a big circle of friends over there.'
The Independent is just one of the newspapers reporting today that West Ham are keen on Man City's Roque Santa Cruz. The paper say that West Ham could land the 29 year old for £10 million. Which, if true, surely wouldn't be the shrewdest business move that Sullivan and Gold have ever made
The Daily Mirror claim that Jeremie Aliadiere will sign for West Ham today.
