Winterburn: To Pompey?
It seems that Harry Redknapp may well be snapping up West Ham rejects once more, with Nigel Winterburn a potential summer signing for the South coast side.

The ex-Hammers boss, now in charge at Portsmouth is one of many contenders to land the ex-Gunner who has been released by Glenn Roeder when his conrtact ends this summer.

With Harry on a tight budget at Pompey, a move for Nige is certainly an option, but his wages may be costly, and outside of the price bracket that chairman Mandaric will allow.

And, in another blow to Hammers fans, Hannu Tihinen will not be joining West Ham in the near future. The former loan signing from Viking Stavenger was bought for a measly £750,000 by Belgian club Anderlecht.

In WestHammersFC's most recent poll, most fans voted in favour of signing him - with less than 20% saying he wasn't worth signing. The full results of that poll are below.

Is Hannu The Right Man To Be The Next Rio?
Yes - Snap Him Up Now51.4%
Yes - But As A Bargain29.7%
No - He's Crap10.8%
No - He's Too Expensive8.1%
