Nestling in the tabloid press is something that almost makes you weep.

Down in South Wales, Wilfried Bony has netted 24 goals this season after joining them for a fee of £12 million.

However, it turns out that West Ham could have acquired the services of the prolific striker for as little as £8 million with a source at the club said to have remarked to the media,

“The deal was done – he was ours for £8 million but the manager was totally focused on Andy who had a long injury and has managed two goals.”

Like I said it is enough to make you almost weep, except that getting rolled over in our transfer dealings is something we`ve become accustomed to over the decades!
