Guti joins camp

Former Real Madrid star Guti has joined the West Ham contingent at their training camp in Austria.

The 35-year-old midfielder, who played more than 500 times for the Spanish giants during 15 years at the club landed in Austria earlier today before joining up with the rest of the camp at their training base close to Vienna.

KUMB revealed three weeks ago that Sam Allardyce was keen for his staff to run the rule over the former Spanish international midfielder, who is available on a free transfer having been a free agent since last November.

West Ham flew out to the Austrian capital last weekend, where they will remain until Saturday.

On the same day Sam Allardyce's team are scheduled to play Austria Wien in their first pre-season friendly, although it remains unknown at this stage whether Guti will feature.

Tickets for the match, which kicks-off at 4pm, go on sale at the stadium from 2pm on matchday. All tickets are priced at 10.

''Like most fans I would be worried whether Guti still had the legs for the Premier League but if he could handle it then his undoubted passing ability could be just what we need. I like Nolan for his goals and creativity but if he's injured then Guti could be the man to slice open opposition defences. Let's face it, we need to give Cole as many chances to score as we can!''

''This is the kind of player who can win a match. I just hope we get him. Am 110% behind this one.''
