Early January Target Rumour List (Out & In)

Roundup of the early rumours of who is targeted and who we are targeting for the January transfer window.


Freddie Piquonne will leave if any sensible offers are received   

Freddie Sears will leave if anyone offers his vaulation of 2 million  

Frank Nouble will be released or sold for a modest fee                                                      

Carlton Cole is wanted by Sunderland.  He will only be sold if he hands in transfer request, offered a price significantily above his valuation or we buy someone better.                              

Rumoured that Mark Noble may go to Fulham  and swapped for Bobby Zamora. Sam does not want to swap. Mark Noble will commit his future to the club & in return be offered a new contract.               

Sam Baldock to Chelsea after rumours surfaced of being watched by Chelsea Scouts on three occasions. Don't see it myself.

James Tomkins  to Newcastle. Pardew is interested in Tomkins but the West Ham board say he is not for sale at any price.That said there is little we can do if he puts in a transfer request. West Ham will put a new deal on the table before January transer window opens. 

Inbound Targets:

Andy Johnson remains our top target from Fullham


Bobby Zamora from Fulham but not as part of a swap deal.
Liam Ridgewell from Birmingham remains a target. Birmingham are dire financial straights but. However a number of premiership clubs want him too. 

Kane Ferdinand  remains a target from Southend United

Wilfred Zaha from Crystal Palace is a target and said to be valued at £5 Million by Crystal Palace

Alex Rodrigo Dias da Costa from Chelsea was rumoured to be a target.  West Ham did look at him have decided his wage demands were too expensive.

Nicolas Anelka . Big Sam confirmed he did speak to Anelka but his wage demands were too high. We could not complete with Chinese team Shanghai Shenhua

Andy O'Brien from Leeds could still be a target.  He will be off loaded by Leeds in January.

Mervan Celik from Swedish clun GAIS is said to be a target


Ryoichi Maeda is a japense striker who plays for Júbilo Iwata is said to be a target
