West Ham Have £5m Bid For Newcastle United Duo Rejected

Post  Guest on Fri Jun 10, 2011 2:56 am

West Ham United have had a £5million bid for Newcastle United duo Kevin Nolan and Alan Smith.

The Hammers new manager Sam Allardyce has wasted no time in seeking recruits to spearhead his push to get his club back into the Premier League at the first time of asking.

‘Big Sam’ has worked with both players before and knows exactly what qualities they bring to the table, most notably talent and commitment.

The Toon Army captain Nolan, recently turned down a new contract offer to stay at St James’ Park as the length of contract on offer was not what he had in mind.

A £3million offer from West Ham is some way short of the Magpies’ £6million valuation of the player according to the Daily Mail.

Allardyce made Nolan his captain while the pair were at Bolton Wanderers together, and the 28-year-old, who scored 12 league goals last season, would be interested in working together again.

Smith was bought by Allardyce in 2007 from Manchester United but has lasted a lot longer in the North-East than his former manager.

A £2million bid for the midfielder was not enough to convince the Newcastle board to sell, even though they will allow him to leave this summer as he only has one-year left on his current deal.

I know West Ham are in the Championship and can't afford to shell out too much money but offering 5 million for Smith and Nolan is taking the urine.
I'd happily let them have Smith for 2 million but I'd sooner keep Nolan, unless he wanted to leave.
If he did want to leave, then we at least want back what we paid for him. 6 million wasn't it?
