Hello to you, and you and ump-pah-pah...No? Jim'll Fix It jokes? No? Fine then.

Well, now then, now then, now then, we have fixed it for you to get all the transfer news from today in one place. No medallion though.

Fine, let's get on with it as you're clearly not in the mood for comedy gold. GOLD, I tell you.

Pocket Linz

Roland Linz, the Austrian striker who lit up Euro 2008 like a damp towel covered in liquid nitrogen, has snubbed a move to West Ham.

He made two appearances as his country, dubbed 'the worst to ever play at the UEFA Euro championships', fell out at the first hurdle.

He plays for Sporting Braga at the moment, but it looks like Porto are set to snaffle him rather than the East London side.

To be honest he seems more like a Wigan player to me, a striker in the mould of Marcus Bent.

Oh well.


This one annoys us here at FansOnline. We picked up this story from violanews.it a few days ago, but decided it was just Italian tat-talk and decided against publishing it.

But then it goes all over the media as someone pretended they saw something or heard something about some talks.

Apparently the Hammers have rekindled their interest in the £9 million rated winger, who currently plies his trade for Lazio in Italy.

However, he commands some pretty high wages so might not fit into the new budget wage structure being developed at West Ham.

Just don't get annoyed when we say 'we told you so' when he doesn't sign.

Noble staying

We brought you this one a couple of days ago, but hey, always nice to show some comittment.

Mark Noble has rejected rumoured overtures from Arsenal in order to stay at the heart of the Hammers' midfield.

Arsenal are reported long time admirers of the midfielder blah blah blah, his performances catching the eye of the larger clubs blah blah.

We've seen and heard it all before a million times for a million players, but at least Noble thinks the team has the chance to push on this season after consolidation in the last campaign.

He said: "Hopefully it'll be a bit more exciting than last year, and we can push on into the UEFA Cup places."
