Hammers renew interest in Solly

West Ham have renewed their interest in Chris Solly with a view to acquiring him in the January transfer window. Sam Allerdyce wants to go back in for Solly when the transfer window opens as he seeks to strengthen his injury hit side. The Hammers boss only currently has Guy Demel to play at rightback with Joey O’Brien being forced to play out of position at left back and Solly could solve his problems in one swoop.

However, Fulham are also said to be in the reckoning, as well as watching Ben Hamer.

Just before Christmas, Chris Powell noted that speculation season was beginning. He said, 'I can try and stop people taking players from here for ludicrous bids. I hope they don’t. We don’t want their heads turned by people putting in bids that wouldn’t even buy one of their legs, let alone all of them.

'I want these players to stay and continue their education here. We will deal with it in the right way.'

Wyn, no question the midfield has problems (Hollands to return?) but I don't think the forwards were without blame on Saturday. Too often the guy with the ball looks up and there's just no movement in front of him, nobody trying to create space and make available an easy pass. And for me Fuller and Hulse were far too far apart, leaving one to try to hold the ball or head it on ... to nobody.

Ah well, Saturday's another day. Happy New Year!
