The Sun says we have turned down a £12 million bid for Craig Bellamy from Spurs – double their original bid. Cheeky buggers. I’m glad they didn’t accept the revised bid, although you have to say £12 million is an awful lot for a player who has been injured for most of the last eighteen months.
They also speculate that Calum Davenport is on his way to Bolton for £1.5 million. That is way to cheap. He cost £3 million and we should be looking to recoup that. Poor sod. Imagine having to play for Gary Megson. A fate worse than death.
Channel 4 say that David di Michele may be returning to Turin. If so, that would leave us a striker short. One player who has been limked with us is Giampaolo Paxxini from Fiorentina, although The Sun reckon he could be on his way to Everton.
