Nouble Recalled

KUMB are reporting that Frank Nouble has been recalled two months early from his three month loan to Swansea. KUMB say that he has been recalled because of the injury to Frederic Piquionne.

The Daily Mail claim that West Ham are set to make an offer for Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic but could face competition from Chelsea.

The 20-year-old, who can also play on the wing, hit the back of the net seven times in his last 12 games last season but has failed to score this season. He is currently being used mostly as a substitute by Barcelona.

The Guardian report that Piquionne and Upson will be absent against Stoke because of injuries. However Avram Grant says that the club are taking the competition seriously,

"The Carling Cup is important We won at Sunderland in the last round and this gave us a big lift forward for the league. We played well against a difficult team, and then won against Tottenham. We want to do the same again. It will be a big test. Against Stoke it is always a battle, a physical and mental battle.

"You always need to be awake, as it is a different style of football. We did well at Stoke in the league last month and I hope we reproduce that. We have to make the match all about us. We have bounced back before this season and we will be working hard to do that once again."
