Last updated : 06 January 2009 By Plymouth_hammer

Upson has been seen as a target for a number of Premiership clubs after his impressive performances for the Hammers and England last season. Newcastle, Arsenal, Man City and Aston Villa have all been mentioned as showing interest in the 29-year-old.

Aston Villa have this morning officially denied the bid with manager Martin O'Neil saying on their official site, "There is not an ounce of truth in it whatsoever."
