It`s known as “the silly season” in football and this January is no exception.
Last night came a report from The Guardian that claimed West Ham had bid £12m for James Maddison, a story carried by the EDP and virtually every other media outlet – including us.
Then around 8 hours later we have the news that West Ham have NOT made such a bid and the EDP say there has been no contact from the Irons for the Canary star.
So, what to believe?
Obviously the EDP are well connected locally but I`ve also picked up a little tit bit for you from elsewhere.
Twitter account @ExWHUemployee, who have a track record of being right when it comes to West Ham, tweeted this last night:
“Just checked we have not made an offer for Maddison”
Either way, it seems we may be safe for now from the Premier League vultures but everything I wrote last night still stands.
I fear it`s just a matter of time before a richer club than us comes knocking for Madders.
