West Ham: Fabregas loan details; Cresswell call-up; midfielder's spell to be cut short
The Mirror claim that a move for Cesc Fabregas will likely take the form of a loan agreement until the end of the season with Chelsea paying part of his £160,000 per week salary. The 29-year-old has been frozen out by Antonio Conte and an exit is on the cards with the Irons hoping to add quality to their midfield.
The move may become permanent in the future but rumours suggest that the former Arsenal man is hoping to see out his contract at Stamford Bridge which is set to run until 2019, with him already having turned down the likes of AC Milan and offers from the Chinese Super League.
Aaron Cresswell has earned his first ever England call-up after being selected to replace the injured Danny Drinkwater, and the 26-year-old told the media:
“It’s a very proud moment for me and my family. I just want to enjoy the experience and do my best in training. If I can do that, then I hope I can achieve my dream of pulling on an England shirt, which is what I’ve wanted to do since I started playing.”
The call up is certainly deserved after his superb form since returning from a knee ligament injury which saw him miss the start of the season. Now, the former Ipswich left back will be hoping to earn his first cap against either Scotland on Friday or Spain on Tuesday under Gareth Southgate.
Slaven Bilic is busy though, and the Sun claim that the Irons are fighting with Besiktas to try to put an early end to Gokhan Tore’s loan spell after the winger’s dreadful displays in claret and blue since joining on loan in the summer. The Turkish club’s chairman, Fikret Orman, said:
“We will definitely get one or two players in because of injuries but 100 per cent there is not a chance that Tore will come back to Besiktas.”
The Hammers were hoping to come to an agreement so that they will not be forced to pay his £40,000 a week wages whilst he warms the bench and struggles for game time.
