The West Ham Exodus Set to Begin
KUMB are reporting that West Ham have offered Hitzlsperger and Ba new contracts.
With Ba's track record of getting out of contracts I really can't see him still being at West Ham next season. However KUMB say that Thomas Hitzlsperger "is understood to be giving the contract offer serious consideration. Having stuck by him during his long spell on the sidelines, Hitzlsperger is said to feel he owes the club at least one full season."
It looks likely that West Ham are going to be left with a lot of young home grown players next year and the side will be crying out for 2 or 3 experienced players - so I really hope the Hammer can be persuaded to stay.
The Evening Standard claim that Robert Green will hold talks with Aston Villa this week. They also say that Parker will also soon leave the club, with Sp#rs leading the chase.
David Sullivan says that the club will only sell three players. However a number of players, such as Upson, will be out of contract and will presumably be leaving on a free.
"We have had no bids yet for any players but we'll probably only sell three and, when they are gone, that's it", said Sullivan.
"If we don't get a realistic price, whoever the player is and if he is under contract, then he'll start next season playing for West Ham."
The Sun claim Stoke are targeting Victor Obinna.
