Carvalho injured - or refusing to train?

Hammers target William Carvalho has failed to report for training with his current club this week - boosting rumours that he may yet be on his way to West Ham.

The defensive midfielder was the subject of a bid in the region of €30million by West Ham last week, since when the two clubs have been haggling over a the price (with an agreement yet to be reached).

However reports from Lisbon today suggest that Carvalho may be deliberately missing training in an attempt to push through a move to the Premier League.

Although he was unavailable for the Champions League game against Steaua Bucharest in midweek due to suspension and a purported shoulder problem, local news outlet Correio da Manhã claimed today that the 25-year-old had refused to train since.




And that, claims the report, is in protest at the manner in which club president Bruno de Carvalho is handling negotiations, which look set to drag on into a third week.

Meanwhile another Portuguese outlet, Jornal de Notícias, claims that the Hammers have now increased their bid to €35miliion - still some €5million short of Carvalho's minimum release fee of €40million.
