Yossi Deal Agreed???

According to Skysports Israel international Yossi Benayoun claims he has agreed a move to West Ham. Sky claim reports in Spain have linked the Racing Santander playmaker with The Hammers, with talks rumoured to have been ongoing this week.

Benayoun apparently revealed in Spanish press that terms at West Ham have been agreed and the transfer is a formality.

"I had many offers, but West Ham attracted me most," said Benayoun.
"My dream has come true.
"It is not about money. I want to be part of the club's adventure back in The Premiership."

He certainly seems to know all about us and seems keen to sign. To be honest I know nothing about him but reports suggest a high pedigree as he has been tracked by Newcastle United, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Bolton Wanderers in the past.

Skysports mentioned that Benayoun is leaving Santander after the Primera Liga club accepted an offer of €3.5 million (£2.4 million) from his agents for his transfer rights. Apparently Racing had agreed a €5 million (£3.4 million) fee with CSKA Moscow, but Benayoun rejected the move because he wants to play in the Premiership. His loyalty seems questionable, so how long until he wants to join a bigger club then?? This has apparels of Eyal Berkovic written all over it.

Skysports also stated that Pardew has also been tipped to make a move for Hammers old boy Fredi Kanoute, with a £4 million offer for the Tottenham striker being mooted.

Look I love Fredi as a player but can we really afford 4 million quid on a player that spends most of his career injured? FFS Pardew - Dean Ashton!!!!!!!
