Either something has went on behind the scenes or Ashley is still really naive when it comes to running a football club. I think it'll probably be the latter as from what i've heard he does seem to be a bit of a nutter when conducting his business dealings, he probably thought he could pull the same shite off here and get away with it.

Not sure what is going on. Wouldnt be surprised if he failed his medical tbh.

 

He passed his medical.

 

I suspect the reasons for the sudden £2m increase in valuation (after rejecting £2m and £4m and agreeing on £6m) have more to do with other issues.

 

 

They'd probably tell West Ham he was undervalued, rather than put the real reason out into the potentially public domain (which would further alienate the player from sections of fans if he ends up staying).
