Ricardo Vaz Te: Handed in a transfer request late in the summer window

The Portuguese forward handed in a transfer request late in the summer window in an effort to force through a move elsewhere.

He was, however, to be left frustrated as the deadline came and went with him still on the books at Upton Park.

A lack of first team opportunities led Vaz Te to look elsewhere, but he must now re-focus on the battle for starting berths.

Allardyce is happy to still have the 26-year-old involved, with West Ham searching for an attacking spark - with Andy Carroll injured and Modibo Maiga goalless.

The Hammers boss said: "Ricardo has never had a bad attitude.

"What he is is a frustrated footballer. He thinks he should be playing on a more regular basis.

"Opportunities will arise. If he takes them, he will be in the team."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
