Wolves are continuing to show an interest in West Ham striker Sam Baldock and a deal involving Charlton is looking much less likely, if it ever was a real possibility. The Hammers hope to use him as bait in their efforts to land former Gillingham player Matt Jarvis. An offer of £8m with £3m in add ons was turned down out of hand by Wolves, but the Hammers are now set to come back with Baldock as part of the package.
I have received some more information about the club's financial situation and related matters and I am now more concerned about the situation than I was. If and when I learn more, I will provide more detail, but it does seem that there are some cash flow challenges in the short term, according to my source who occupies a crucial catering role at the training ground.
The immediate lesson I would draw is that success on the pitch and the fans getting behind the team becomes more important than ever.
