Fulham turn down West Ham bid for their captain

Fulham have rejected a bid from West Ham United for their captain Tom Cairney.

The 27-year old Scottish international scored the only goal in the play-off final against Aston Villa last month to earn Fulham’s promotion back to the Premier League and is seen by the West London side as key to their survival in the top flight after a four year absence.

However, Sky Sports reports that The Hammers have decided to resurrect their interest in the midfielder, having had two bids turned down for him during the January transfer window.

West Ham have already captured one of Fulham’s promotion winning side in the shape of right-back Ryan Fredericks who joined on a free transfer earlier this month.

Under new manager Manuel Pellegrini they have already broken their transfer record to sign Issa Diop from Toulouse, whilst Lucasz Fabianski has been brought in from Swansea City. They are also the latest club to be linked with jack Wilshere who is available after announcing his intention to leave Arsenal at the end of the month.
