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."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
