Hi chaps, I've read one report suggesting there is an ex West Ham player wanting a loan move to West Ham in January, he's apparently in the twilight of his career and would like one last hurrah, the report was sounding out some names that it couldn't possibly be but was then left with just two, Payet and Tevez, I'm sure it's just pure speculation but who is this ex player?

Surely this has to be a player who ACTUALLY thinks they would get in the team, otherwise there would be no "hurrah" to come from it.
Tevez is a good shout, I don't see it being Payet given the way he left, unless he feels he owes it to the fans to give something back after the way he had to leave. Personally i'd welcome him back.
Not read this rumour anywhere, but love some speculative names!
Or maybe a player MP has previously bought while at another club . CR7, Benzema, Jovetic, Monreal, Isco, Delph, De Bruyne, Godin, Cazorla, Negredo
Could see Monreal, Delph or even Jovetic being realistic. What is great is looking through the list of players he has bought previously, some VERY impressive names there. Most were ok players who became great players, then there is CR7 who must have seen something in MP to want to go and play for him. Isco, Godin, Negredo, Cazorla, Caballero, Demichelis were all nothing when MP first bought them while at Villarreal or Malaga.

Can only think of Payet, Tevez, Demba Ba or Ravel Unless it is something left field like Andre Ayew/ Alex Song?
Kinda hope it is Joao Mario though, he had started to play well last year.

Mercerl, if you go to 'news now' it's under the headline "January loan move mystery man"?

DEFOES agent has asked if we are interested in taking him from Bournemouth on loan where he can’t. get a game this season He has been told it’s I unlikely , it would be a mistake he’s too old, we must be looking at a lot younger players. IRONMIKE.

News now only get their info from other sites and are very rarely true stevie what they do is get info from other sites and twist the stories mate.

{Ed001's Note - newsnow does not twist anything, they do not do anything other than aggregate links. All the site does is gather up lots of links and then group them according to topic. If the story is twisted, that is down to the site that the link takes you to, not newsnow. Though they should be a lot more judicious in their choice of sites they accept, it is the sites they link to that are at fault.}

No SOF for Defoe who would snap at the chance. 120k a week unlikely Bournemouth would doubtless like to pass him on, Football is the funniest game of all so anything can happen but our ambition has to be better than that. IRONMIKE.

I agree Mike, I don't know what sort of budget we'll have in January as we've just spent £100m so do you think Defoe until the end of the season could do a job, he knows the prem inside out so wouldn't really need a bedding in period like a foreign import might, it just depends on the budget, not unless they are going to go for loans.?

Most January signings seem to turn out to be a waste of financial resources, Moyes reputedly suggested we pay the £9m for Hugill that played 15 minutes for us, I personally thought he should have been given more of a chance, there were some good reports about him after we acquired him, unless we have more injury problems than at present we should keep our options open for the summer window, unless we have decent offers for those that are now deemed to be excess to requirements and use that income for the summer window!

News now said that we had signed the young lad from Italy can't think of his name and it was a rumour at the time Mike had stated we could have been signing him think it was Lopez the only site that said he had signed was news now so twisted aggregate all along those lines were not true either twisted or not true or aggregated all strikingly similar. COYI.
