Sidwell’s Hammers Move Hijacked

Steve Sidwell’s proposed switch to West Ham is in doubt after progress seems to have stalled over the players wage demands. The midfielder is a high earner at Villa Park despite never breaking into the first team for a sustained period. It was believed that terms were all but a formality after the 28-year-old passed a medical at Upton Park last week. The Hammers had apparently won the race to Sidwell’s signature due to the fact that he lives in London already. Wolves were also thought to have had a bid accepted and Mick McCarthy appeared to begrudgingly admit defeat to Avram Grant’s side. However, the move which was expected to be completed earlier in the week has come to a stand still and Villa’s Midlands rivals Wolves and West Brom are both keen to renew their interest and steal the former Chelsea man’s signing from under the nose of Grant and West Ham
