Light at the end of the tunnel

Joorabchian, the man who is currently wanted by Brazilian authorities - a revelation which comes as no surprise to the reputation which precedes him - has apparently struck a deal with Eggert Magnusson and West Ham to achieve an out of court settlement.

It would appear that rather than be accused of defrauding a contract as rumours come to light of a 'suspicious signature' - or perhaps more kindly put - to ensure a deal is done quickly before the window closes, a compensation package for West Ham has reportedly been agreed.

The news will come as a huge relief to West Ham fans who will want this new exciting era in the claret and blue to take off without Tevez and his muddlesome incompetent, despite the Argentine's continued heroic status at the Boleyn.
