Rumours are abound that the first player to leave Upton Park in January will be Lee Bowyer. Bowyer has been getting some minutes on the pitch in recent weeks, but even with a number of injuries in the centre of the park he has not been first choice.

The rumour is that he will be heading to Championship high-flyers Birmingham City for £750k.

Bowyer is a decent squad player, but we know Zola is going to have a clear-out, and with youngsters like Collison beginning to show their worth Bowyer may be surplus to requirements.
