Keane Demands £1 million in Bonuses
Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier has confirmed Steve Sidwell is close to completing a move to West Ham. Houllier said, "Steve is having a medical. He's at the end of his contract (next summer) and it's not a secret he lives in London."
The Telegraph claim that a planned move by West Ham for Robbie Keane has collapsed after Keane asked for a £1 million bonus should he help the club avoid relegation.
The Telegraph also say that West Ham made an offer on Tuesday to take Wayne Bridge on loan until the end of the season. Man City are demanding West Ham pay a greater percentage of Bridge's wages than the Irons want. The Telegraph say that West Ham have not given up hope though that a deal can be done.
The Guardian say that West Ham will sell Matthew Upson and Kieron Dyer in January if any club offers a reasonable transfer fee.
