Solly to join Hammers?

According to unconfirmed reports from an unofficial West Ham website, the Hammers are interested in Player of the Year Chris Solly. Charlton are claimed to want Sam Baldock in exchange for Solly. Discussions, it is said, are taking place between both clubs.

Baldock is a striker who comes from Buckinghamshire and at one time played for MK Dons. Injury and the arrival of other players have limited his opportunities at Upton Park: Baldock

We do need a striker, but if Solly went we would need to find another right back. In any case it's all very speculative.


  1. It would have to be a good sum of money plus Baldock to make this anything like a decent deal. Not only would we need another right back, but how much would it cost to get one of Solly's quality and potential. Baldock when you look at his record isn't what you'd call prolific by any stretch of the imagination.

  2. I heard West Ham want 1.5 million for Baldock!! I can't recall seeing him play so I can't comment on him, but does seem a lot for someone with his non prolific goalscoring record (as Scoops pointed out) - I would hope we would get £2 million for Solly at least personally.
