Leyton Orient turn down £8million transfer bid from West Ham, apparently
The tabloid gossip columns are usually far-fetched enough without the fans making matters worse. But this member of an Everton forum got completely the wrong end of the stick when he read that West Ham’s bid for striker Kevin Gameiro, of French side Lorient, had been rejected.
The Tenerife-based Toffee was concerned that the Hammers were trying to rip off his club with cheeky bids for Yakubu when they had clearly got £8 million to throw at a League One player!
Tip of the hat to Dan O’Connor, who’s recovering from a nasty chair fall after spotting this.
