Both West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace have refuted claims that players of theirs have been the subject of attention from West Ham United.
Within the last few hours, both Albion sporting and technical director Dan Ashworth and Palace co-chairman Steve Parish have spoken our to deny that the Hammers have contacted either club with regards to central defender Jonas Olsson or winger Wilfried Zaha.
Baggies director Ashworth, whose Swedish defender Olsson has been linked with both West Ham and Tottenham within the past few days told the BBC: "We certainly haven't heard anything from anyone.
"Jonas is still under contract here, he's an important player and an important part of our future."
Meanwhile Parish, who has been in charge at Selhurst Park since his CPFC2010 consortium wrestled control of the club from its previous owners two years ago said via Twitter: "We haven't had any contact from West Ham actually ever about anything.
"Hope that clears things up. Smokescreen?"
Elsewhere today there is very little transfer news with regards to West Ham, so much so that the dailies continue to focus on the 'Rob Green to QPR' story as they scramble to fill their column inches.
Green, who is currently deputising for Joe Hart at the European Championships is now only 48 hours away from signing for the Rs according to one particular tabloid - which unless someone can see into the future and predict a defeat for England against Ukraine tonight, is rather unlikely to happen given that he shall still be in Eastern Europe.
