Cole Not for Sale
Avram Grant has revealed that West Ham turned down a 'substantial' offer from Liverpool in the summer for Carlton Cole and a similar offer for Scott Parker made by Sp#rs.
The newspapers yesterday reported that Grant's claim that he doesn't want to sell Cole revealed he was scared that Cole would be sold. So Grant has responded by saying the club have already turned down substantial offers for the striker.
"We kept our nerve. This club is £110 million in debt and everyone knows we are desperate for money.
"It wasn’t because we could not find a replacement for Carlton – but it showed what we think of him. Scotty too. We all want the best for West Ham. They showed it once. I am confident they will do it again."
