West Ham scouts watched him but worry he may not qualify for a work permit.

West Ham & Swansea To Snap Up Spurs Super Duo?


After Spurs failed to qualify for the Champions League :lol: this season, the club have to carefully consider the long term plans of certain players in order to reduce their wage bill and invest it into their summer purchases.

Two players who are extremely likely to leave the North London side this summer are Louis Saha and Giovani Dos Santos.

The release of Saha has been met with the rumour that their London rivals, West Ham, are looking to snap up the star on a free agent. However, with nothing official coming from Louis Saha’s Twitter page nor the Tottenham website, it is unknown if the French international is going to join another Premiership side anytime soon.

But if he is to leave, should he go to West Ham? With the Championship side being promoted last season in the play-off final to secure a position in the forthcoming Premier League season, the Hammers have a lot more money to spend on wages as well as transfers. But with this proven goalscorer being available on a free transfer, this signing wouldn’t damage the bank too badly.

However, the injury prone striker has had his career damaged with constant games out due to health fears consisting of muscle tears, damaged ankles and ligament strains.

Saha scores 1 goal every 3 games on average scoring 42 goals in 120 appearances for Manchester United , and 3 goals out of 9 for Tottenham Hotspur. But, even without Saha’s goals this season, the club would have received the same amount of points and still would have finished fourth, which questions his ability to score important goals.

Winston Reid wins soccer player of the year award



English Premiership-bound Winston Reid may have been ruled out of the All Whites' Oceania Nations Cup campaign with injury but scooped the 2011 player of the year at NZ Football's awards evening.

West Ham defender Reid, who played a key part in the East London side's climb back into the top flight of English football, also won the new players' player of the year award.

The 23-year-old featured 30 times for the Hammers this season and netted three goals. He edged out Wellington Phoenix defender Ben Sigmund and UK-based striker Chris Wood for the award.

Wood picked up his third young player of the year award.

Sweden-based Ali Riley collected her fifth women's player of the year award and her fourth in a row.

The 24-year-old defender's US club side won the professional league in 2011 but she ended up at Malmo after the league's 2012 season was cancelled. She joins German side Duisburg later this season.

Abby Erceg won the players' player gong while international team-mate Hannah Wilkinson won three awards - young player, women's league player and golden boot award.

The under-17 men's team, who reached the knockout stages of their World Cup in Mexico, were named team of the year and Auckland City coach Ramon Tribulietx picked up the coach's award.







Brendan Rodgers, who is expected to be named Liverpool manager on Friday, could raid Swansea for three of his former players: Scott Sinclair, 23, Gylfi Sigurdsson, 22, and Ashley Williams, 27.

Swansea midfielder Joe Allen, 22, is also being lined up for a move to Anfield - although the youngster, who came through the ranks at the Welsh club, has three years left on his contract and would cost Liverpool £10m.

Manchester United have joined the race to sign Valencia defender Jordi Alba, 23. The left-back is also a target for Barcelona.

Wait and see if Saha was going to any other club he would be a free transfer but because we are sniffing around the filth will demand a fee. :x
