Antonio crashes Lamborghini

Michail Antonio has been described as “okay” and safely with the Hammers squad this evening after he crashed his Lamborghini yesterday.

The news started circulating on social media earlier and a club insider has revealed that the current top Hammer had indeed been involved in an incident.

However, he was unclear where and how it took place but confirmed that the player is fine and currently with the squad ahead of the Boxing Day clash with Crystal Palace.

No details are available of how the incident occurred or where but the news that matters as far as most Hammers fans are concerned is that Michail is fit for the key fixture.

We understand there have been no casualties involved and that the player is set for inclusion in today’s line-up for the match at Selhurst Park.

Meanwhile, it seems likely that the goalkeeping berth will be taken by David Martin with Lukasz Fanianski returning for the Leicester City game.


AC Milan are prepared to allow midfielder Franck Kessie to leave next month amid interest from the Premier League, according to a report.

We reported last week that the Rossoneri are ready to allow Kessie to leave if their asking price is met, as his agent had been told during a meeting that his client is no longer considered fundamental to the project.

Vito Angele also told us that interest from the Premier League is still alive with West Ham and Wolverhampton having already initiated contacts, and Milan having set a valuation of €25million.

According to Calciomercato.com, Kessie will be allowed to leave Milan in January. They add that the Premier League hypothesis is concrete, while at the moment the Chinese one is to be excluded.

Meanwhile, MilanNews.it reported on Tuesday that Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka or Manchester United’s Nemanja Matic could be brought in as potential replacements, with Ismael Bennacer likely to shift to mezzala.


Derby's highly-rated full-back Jayden Bogle targeted by four Premier League clubs for January move

Derby County full-back Jayden Bogle has four Premier League clubs looking at signing him in January, with West Ham the latest to join the race for the England Under-20 international.

Bogle, 19, has attracted interest after breaking into the first team under Frank Lampard and playing 40 games in the Championship and helping his club reach the play-off final.

The £7 million-rated youngster looks set to move to the top-flight as clubs look to land him from Pride Park. West Ham are in the market for a right-back to add competition for Ryan Fredericks and Bogle is firmly in their sights.

Crystal Palace and Brighton are also looking to add a right-back when the transfer window opens next month and the teenager is seen as one of the biggest prospects in the Championship.

And Burnley are also looking at their long-term options at right-back but have Phil Bardsley and Matt Lowton in their first-team squad at the moment and may wait until the summer to sort that position.

Derby boss Phillip Cocu has stated he may lose Bogle as the interest in him gathers pace, admitting recently: “I am not surprised that there are some clubs interested in Jayden."

He has two-and-a-half years left on his current contract at the club but Derby could be tempted by an offer in January that would allow Cocu to strengthen his squad elsewhere.

I would be surprised they signed one in all honesty

Expect some cheap fix

Re: Boxing Day newspapers (includes West Ham)
It will be one or the other, never in a million years they are signing two 20 million+ players for the centre midfield. They haven´t spent properly on this area since they arrived, Parker was signed by the Icelandics

Re: Boxing Day newspapers (includes West Ham)
I'd love to see us splash out on Kessie and Sander Berge. Two youngsters who could sort our midfield for years.
Jayden Bogle looks an excellent right-back. If he is available for £7M it's a no-brainer, although I suspect they'll want a lot more than that.

Kessie would be a good signing but he´ll go to Wolves for obvious reasons
