A round up of the Monday morning Hammers transfer headlines ...

The Times claim that Calum Davenport is now in talks with Bolton over a proposed move. Bolton's interest has become widely known in recent days after the central defender fell out with manager Gianfranco Zola. No price is mentioned although the Hammers are likely to accept around 2million, 1million less than they paid Tottenham for his services two years ago.

News of Manchester City's interest in Scott Parker is dealt with elsewhere (see KUMB news) but the Eastlands-based club are also said to have made an improved bid for striker Craig Bellamy, according to the Independent. Despite Gianfranco Zola's insistence that Bellamy remains very much a part of his plans an offer of around 15million could tempt the Hammers boss into a sale - assuming he would receive the bulk of the deal in order to replace the Welsh international.

Meanwhile former Hammers target Stephen Appiah will begin training with Harry Redknapp's Tottenham today with view to signing a permanent contract. The Hammers had tracked Appiah over the summer but failed to reach an agreement with the free agent prior to the end of the summer transfer window due to his excessive demands.

Staying out of the firing line is Gianfranco Zola, who hotfooted it to Sardinia straight after Saturday's FA Cup win over Barnsley - so much so that Steve Clarke was asked to cover the press briefings.

Rumours of a bust-up with Scott Duxbury with regard to the possible sale of Scott Parker to Manchester City have been uttered although the official line is that Zola is visiting family; horse's heads on the pillow for anyone who dare suggest otherwise...
