Gudjohnsen - talks held?

Reports tonight suggest that West Ham United have held talks with representatives of Barcelona with regard to a deal for striker Eidur Gudjohnsen.

KUMB understands that a party from the Spanish giants - led by vice-president Marc Ingla - met Hammers chiefs last week to discuss a fee for the 29-year-old Icelandic international, who joined Barca two years ago this summer.

Should the Hammers land their man it will end a 12-month pursuit of the former Chelsea player, who was first linked with a move to United during last summer's transfer window.

Gudjohnsen - who is known to have visited London last week - is thought to be keen on a return to the Premier League, where he spent eight years with Bolton and Chelsea. Barcelona are willing to sell a player they landed for around 6 million for a similar fee.

As always, we'll bring you more news on this as it happens.

''A good signing in my view and a sign that top players are prepared to join us. This could pave the way for some more top players and preferably a bit younger too!''

''Paying 6 million for a 29-year-old is madness, and I bet he would want top wages too. Instead give some incentives to our own strikers, buy someone like David Bentley who will control the midfield and score goals too...''
