With Carlton Cole wanted by Sunderland, and Anelka more likely to move to the Far East than the East End, Allardyce and West Ham are desperately scouring the world, trying to identify forwards available to fire the club to promotion. One target, Habib Habibou is said to be keen to trade Belgium for England, but with his club holding out for a transfer fee, Allardyce is considering looking elsewhere, with North African Toat El-Sheit the latest to be linked with the club.
The forward has triggered interest after making a big splash in the Moroccan GNF1, but West Ham are said to face stiff competition from QPR, with Warnock said to be a big fan of Sheit.
This all smacks of desperation to me. It looks very much as if any old crap will do, providing it is cheap. God, he's a Moroccan not a Brazilian! Let last of the big spenders QPR sign Toat El-Sheit, we should be looking for quality, not competing with Neil Warnock for North African crap!
