West Ham bid for Jarvis rejected

West Ham bid for Jarvis rejected

Premier League new boys West Ham United have become the first club to make their move for Wolves winger Matt Jarvis.

Since our relegation to the Championship was confirmed the rumour mill has been in full swing in regards to Matt Jarvis.

It seemed a day wouldn't pass without a new club apparently declaring their interest in Jarvis if you believe everything you read in the newspapers.

Southampton, Everton, Fulham, Newcastle, Sunderland, Tottenham, Stoke, West Ham and Reading have all been linked in recent weeks and that's just the Premier League clubs!

Italian side Udinese have also been keeping a close eye on Jarvis according to the media. That's right, Udinese who have qualified for the Champions League play-off rounds after finishing third in this seasons Serie A, ahead of Lazio, Napoli, Internazionale and Roma.

You'd have to think that if that little rumour is true then surely they have to be the favourites to prize him away from Molineux?

But for now it would seem that West Ham are the only club to have made an official offer, which has been rejected according to a report from Sky Sports.

The bid was believed to be in the region of £4million, the price that has been most commonly quoted by the media despite many Wolves fans believing he is worth twice that figure.

Will West Ham make a second approach? Or will their move force another clubs hand to make an offer?

Vital Wolves Comment: With Jarvis under contract until 2015 at least we are in a strong negotiating position and unlike other recent relegated Premier League clubs our finances shouldn't prompt a quick fire sale.

the media are at it again! led by the E&S, Jez Moxey stated in yesterdays E&S that "no club" had made a formal offer for any of our players, these stories are being made to unsettle the player and to provide the media with a story! the media would sell their own mother down the road for a story - I will believe it when it is on the Wolves web site saying this or that player has gone, same with buying - The club will announce it. Bloody media should shut up!

round and round and round we go... he wont leave for another stuggling team and many of those mentioned simply do not have the cash. Would he stay ? I think he might.

I hate the close season.

Untill some one from Wolves confirms that some one has put a bid in then its just speculation. Neither Jarvis or Fletcher have said any thing about leaving and definitely not for the money that has been mentioned by intererested parties. I have said before if Downing a one footed donkey is worth 15- 20 million then Jarvis is worth the same. The same with Fletcher hes been in double figures for scoreing goals with Wolves and Burnley even thou both teams struggled. If Southampton can pay 6-7 million for an unknow what price Fletcher who has proved he can score in the PL it has to be an eight figue sum just to start talking.

Well, let's get used to it because the papers as always are going to be full of this on a daily basis- it will of course get significantly worse when there is not the small matter of a major tournament going on. I don't know where they pluck these stupid numbers from. If you sold Fletch for ten million and went back up you are not going to get a player of that quality to do it at the top like he has already shown he can. The bids will come. The club have already said they do not need to sell so the only way a player should leave, by this theory is by asking for permission to talk to any such club that comes in for them. If they do, then that is up to them. If we find out the club goes back on its word a accepts a bid they may describe as too good to refuse then they have everything to answer for. Whilst transfer talk goes on, they should get in and get this bloke from Lillestrom before someone else buys him.

We'll need the SAS to do it, though, NYCW. It seems the bloke is being held captive by the club.
