Guest Kamy100 Posted January 29, 2010 Share Posted January 29, 2010 Sam Allardyce has confirmed that Benni McCarthy is expected to complete his move to West Ham within the next 48 hours. In an interview given to the club's official website (www.rovers.co.uk) Allardyce said "I don't know exactly where things are up to, but I do know that he is close to finally becoming a West Ham player, It is a work permit situation that is the only hiccup, but I think that will be overcome in the next day or so". Sam also confirmed that replacements had been looked at and suggested that the money could be used to strengthen other parts of the team "We are looking at the opportunity to bring another player in if that transfer does go through. When it is final, nailed on, that he has left then we'll try and move as quickly as we can to secure another player. It might not be on the front line". So it does appear that finally the McCarthy transfer saga is coming to an end. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
