P(l)ay as you go?

West Ham United co-owner David Sullivan claims to have run up a telephone bill in excess of £2,000 during the last transfer window.

The Hammers brought Pablo Barrera, Winston Reid, Frederic Piquionne, Thomas Hitzlsperger, Victor Obinna and Tal Ben Haim to Upton Park over the summer in a bid to improve upon last season’s 17th place finish under Gianfranco Zola.

But last season’s poor showings have continued under new manager Avram Grant, leaving West Ham sitting rock bottom of the nascent Premier League table.

Sullivan said: “I’ve never worked harder in a transfer window. We signed eight players as well as hanging onto our star names.

“My phone bill was more than £2,000.”
