Hitz Wants to Leave West Ham
The Telegraph say that Demba Ba and Thomas Hitzlsperger have both activated clauses in their contracts that allow them to leave West Ham on free transfers. The paper also claim that West Ham have only received one offer for Parker, from Fenerbahce, that Parker turned down.
Parker is understood to want to remain in the Premier League but his age and transfer fee are proving a stumbling block to interested clubs.
Sky are reporting that Anthony Gardner's move to Birmingham has broken down after the resignation of Alex McLeish. They say West Ham are now interested in signing the defender who is available on a free contract.
