Tevez in Bobby out?

News round-up. Take it with a grain of salt but... is reporting :-

Carlos Tevez could still be a West Ham player next season, after reports emerged over a new deal which will keep the Argentina international at Upton Park.
But, a "top source" revealed to the News of the World: "Mr Magnusson has pulled out all the stops to keep Carlos for at least another season. "The package will cost £9million in wages and payments to his owner Kia Joorabchian but the chairman is convinced the deal is done."


The same source is also touting Bobby is set to leave though they are quoting News of the World!, :-

"Hammers boss Alan Curbishley has told Zamora he has no future at Upton Park and can leave along with fellow striker Marlon Harewood."


The Sheffield United arbitration hearing occurs today. Something I hadn't read before is that SU themselves undertook a questionable dealing in January :-

"But a report Sunday said United also breached league rules by selling Steve Kabba to Watford with the proviso that the striker didn't play against them in a subsequent match.

Such arrangements are frequently arranged with loan deals. But Kabba moved to Watford in a full transfer in January and the Premier League rules say there can be no contractual terms to prevent a player from facing a former club.

McCabe said there was nothing in the contract that Kabba shouldn't play against the Blades, although the two managers may have agreed between them.

"I am sure there won't be a clause in the contract," he said. "The contract transferring Steve Kabba from Sheffield to Watford was one that was open, was honest and was properly looked at by the Premier League and registered. There is no gray area on that whatsoever."

So it's alright as long as you don't commit the breach of rules to paper?!?!?!? Two faced twats.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~$1100527.htm suggests we have beaten out Everton for Manuel Fernandes . The defensive midfielder has been on loan at Everton since January where he made 9 appearances and scored 2 goals including one against Man United. Reports are Everton weren't prepared to pay the £12 million asking price.
