We all thought so, didn't we? (sigh of relief anyway)
From the official website: "West Ham United would like to categorically deny recent rumours that defender Anton Ferdinand will be leaving the Club in a £3 million deal. The Club's Legal Director Scott Duxbury said: 'These rumours are utter nonsense. Anton has come up through the Club's Academy and made tremendous progress this season. He was a vital part of the side that won promotion, and our aim is to now build on that side and take the Club forward on the pitch.' "
