Sign up or leave, warns Brown

Hammers Chairman Terry Brown has warned players yet to commit their future to the club that they face being sold in the near future.

Brown, speaking in his annual report this afternoon revealed that players who were dilly-dallying over signing new deals faced being placed on the transfer list should they refuse to accept offers from the club.

"We, along with all other clubs, must ensure that the new freedom of contract enjoyed by players does not allow our best players to simply leave at the end of their contracts," said Brown, "with no compensation payable to the club that either discovered and nurtured their talent at a huge financial cost - or, indeed, paid a substantial transfer fee to secure the services of the player in the first place."

The warning comes despite the club turning in an operating profit for the first time in three years.

We'll have more on the Chairman's statement soon ...
