Stephen Warnock: Looks set to move to Championship

West Ham had shown an interest in the former England man, and had held talks with the left-back after Aston Villa told him he could leave.

The 31-year-old has not featured under Paul Lambert and spent time on loan at Bolton earlier this season.

A number of clubs have shown an interest and he looked set for a switch to West Ham - who need cover at left-back.

"Stephen we thought was a go-er, but another club in the Championship made him a more long-term offer which I think he has accepted, so I think he has decided to take that so that," said Hammers boss Sam Allardyce.

Leeds have now moved into pole position due to the fact they could offer Warnock a longer-term deal - which looks to have persuaded him that his future lies at Elland Road.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
