Owners Loan West Ham £30 million
The News of the World and The Star say West Ham are chasing Newcastle's Alan Smith.
The Mirror claim that Aston Villa tried to clinch a deal with Kevin Nolan but that Nolan refused to do a U-turn after giving his word to West Ham co-owner David Sullivan that he would move to West Ham if they could reach an agreement with Newcastle.
The Mirror also report that David Sullivan and David Gold have given West Ham an interest free £30m loan to keep West Ham afloat. Sullivan says,
"We have now put in £30m to keep the club afloat and fund transfers. We expect that figure to rise."
