With talk of the Trees getting Harewood back
apparently there is red tape guarding against a club selling a player and re-signing him within 12 months
come on mickey, steal him!
Red tape = league rules say you aren't allowed to do it
Connolly - seen on another message board that Sunderland have been linked with him in the London press. So if 2 of us are bidding £500k, the price will go up, bet Hammers will ask for a £1m & take the highest bid - mind you Connolly has got to fancy the move as well
well well well, now we ARE being rumoured with him
Forest face competition from four other clubs for the signature of Marlon Harewood.
Premiership new boys Crystal Palace and Norwich are in the chase, along with Leicester City and Leeds United.
West Ham boss Alan Pardew is determined to hold onto the striker he signed from the Reds for £500,000 in November.
He played down the Forest link, saying: "Marlon has already said that he is very happy at West Ham United and has no wish to leave.
"I'm delighted about that because I can assure our supporters that Marlon is very much part of my plans for the new season."
However, the financial situation at Upton Park may force Pardew's hand.
The Hammers are desperate to reduce their wage bill following their failure to bounce straight back into the Premiership last season.
Losing to Palace in the play-off final has meant they have had to look at reducing their wage bill.
Midfielder Michael Carrick and Czech defender Tomas Repka are the two big-earners the club was looking to sacrifice but there have been no offers for them.
The only player attracting interest at Upton Park is Harewood, who ended last season with 26 goals, 12 of which were scored for Forest.
The season before he had scored 21, as he helped steer Forest to the play-offs.
