West Ham fight to keep Bellamy

Thursday, December 25, 2008

West Ham have reportedly turned down a £6 million bid from Tottenham for striker Craig Bellamy.

The financial uncertainty at Upton Park has led to speculation that Hammers boss Gianfranco Zola may be forced into selling his best players, but Sky Sports News reported on Wednesday that they had rejected Spurs' offer for Bellamy.

The Welshman is rumoured to be top of Spurs boss Harry Redknapp's January shopping list, as he is short of attacking options at White Hart Lane, with Darren Bent, Roman Pavlyuchenko and Fraizer Campbell the only recognised strikers available. Pavlyuchenko cannot play in the UEFA Cup and Campbell is only on loan from Manchester United.

However, Zola is determined to keep his leading figures and admits he would be 'very annoyed' if he did lose any members of his squad — despite the club's current financial plight.

Bellamy has also spoken of his happiness at Upton Park recently, although he admitted he was unsure if West Ham would accept any bids.
