The Ruf is... off

Onetime Hammers favourite Rufus Brevett has signed a one-year deal with Plymouth Argyle. His injury nearly two years ago threatened to end his career permanently but it looks like he's made a recovery, so that's good. At a sprightly 35, he should still have a year or two ahead of him. Good luck, Ruf!

Another former Hammer who has left is Greg Pearson, who has signed with Rushden & Diamonds for two years. The striker only made one or two substitute appearances for West Ham. Said he, "I have one ambition, I want to score goals, its as simple as that. It is all I have ever wanted to do as a footballer." Well, he'll get his opportunity now.

In other news, West Ham are now linked with Sam Ricketts. The 23-year old Welsh rightback has a year left on his contract with Swansea City. He got the first of his three caps earlier this year, following good performances for his just-promoted club, and is in talks about extending his contract.
