Letzter Badetag

Geht West Ham beim Versuch, einen weiteren Stürmer zu holen, baden?

-> UPDATE
Die Antwort lautet JA. Marouane Chamakh von Bordeaux kommt nicht.
Der Italiener
Alessandro Diamanti - er kostete 5,5 Mio Pfund – zahlbar laut KUMB in drei Jahresraten - bleibt der einzige zusätzliche Forward, den die Hammers verpflichten konnten.

Die 5 Mio Pfund für – den von mir sehr geschätzten, stets loyalen – James Collins und die 3 Mio. Pfund, die man von Fiorentina für Savio erhalten haben soll, bleiben anscheinend vorerst zum größeren Teil im Tresor. Oder braucht sie die in finanziellen Schwierigkeiten befindliche Mutter der Holding-Gesellschaft?
Zumindest einen Teil der Summe wird man unter Umständen dem Sponsor SBOBET refundieren, bei dem man zur Finanzierung des Diamanti-Deals einen Vorgriff auf Sponsorengelder gemacht hat.

Das sagt die offizielle Homepage:

“West Ham United can confirm the departure of James Collins has concluded the club’s business during the transfer window.

Attempts were made on Tuesday to finalise negotiations for another forward to complement the existing attack that already boasts England striker Carlton Cole and was boosted further by Alessandro Diamanti’s arrival from AS Livorno Calcio on Friday. Terms were agreed with the selling club but the player was unwilling to join.

Gianluca Nani and Gianfranco Zola are now discussing the possibility of an out of contract striker joining the club, who has been tracked in the past month.

Collins joined Aston Villa on a four-year contract for an undisclosed fee after passing a medical on Tuesday afternoon. The Wales defender leaves the Boleyn Ground after four years at the club, during which time the 26-year-old made 65 league and cup appearances, scoring twice.

With Matthew Upson, James Tomkins, Danny Gabbidon, Jonathan Spector and Radoslav Kovac, a permanent signing from Spartak Moscow, already at the club, plus Manuel Da Costa arriving from ACF Fiorentina, the manager has good options at centre-back. The other new recruits this summer have been goalkeeper Peter Kurucz, left-backs Fabio Daprela and Herita Ilunga and the attacking midfielder Luis Jimenez as well as striker Alessandro Diamanti.”
