Wolves boss Mick Mccarthy has decided to make a shock move for Lee Bowyer who is available on a free transfer. Bowyer was released by Birmingham last season.
The January Transfer window is closed, Andrei Arshavin, Robbie Keane, Ricardo Quaresma hit the headlines. Eyefootball lists the club-by-club transfer deals of January.
West Ham midfielder Lee Bowyer is refusing to panic, despite the club's terrible form in recent weeks. Gianfranco Zola's side have slipped to some embarassing results, and many are already calling for the Italian's head.
It would be hard to argue that this is probably the weekend's most pointless game; West Ham are 7 points off their nearest rival Blackburn in 9th whilst Spurs are three points behind. Derby have been relegated already and eyes are already on Championship preparation.
Fulham take on West Ham at Craven Cottage - desperate to gain some revenge for the 2-1 defeat they suffered earlier in the season to the Hammers. West Ham won thanks to an Anton Ferdinand goal.
Alan Curbishley believes that referee Mark Clattenburg will have a look at the red card he gave Lee Bowyer for his apparent two footed lunge on Birmingham's Damien Johnson. West Ham boss Curbishley felt the punishment was harsh and he believes the referee will take another look at the incident.
James McFadden bagged a goal from the penalty spot to deny West Ham a fourth consecutive home victory. It looked all rosey for the Hammers as West Ham took the lead from Freddie Ljungberg, scoring his first goal for the club.

In midweek West Ham lost 2-1 to Everton in the Carling Cup, and what a time to make up for it and get some revenge, just four days later. Everton are undefeated in 11 games, and will need to be at their best to get something in this tough away match.
The Premiership's early Saturday kick-off sees Chelsea take on West Ham at Stamford Bridge, with both sides looking to get more points on the board. Chelsea are undefeated in 13 in all competitions whilst the Hammers are undefeated in six.
West Ham versus Spurs always seems to be a bit of an epic, much like the 4-3 win Tottenham picked up last year. This time around, West Ham are the more settled side, and Spurs will face a tough trip to Upton Park in the 1:30 kick off. Dean Ashton and Scott Parker are both ready to return - could Juande Ramos pick up important derby points?
West Ham mauled the Premiership's bottom club Derby 5-0 today with goals from Bowyer (2), Etherington and Solano. It was a dreadful performance by Derby who already look destined for the Championship.
West Ham 0-1 Arsenal
Arsenal continued their fantastic Premiership form as they stayed on top of the league thanks to grinding out a 1-0 victory over West Ham at Upton Park with Robin Van Persie grabbing an early goal.
Newcastle defeated West Ham with Mark Viduka scoring an excellent brace and Charles N'Zogbia also getting on the scoresheet. Dean Ashton's goal for West Ham was not enough for the London side to rescue some points. Michael Owen was also taken off as an injury precaution with a groin problem.
Sam Allardyce had announced that he decided to pull the plug on Kieron Dyer's move to West Ham from Newcastle at the last minute because the offer on the table was not good enough for a player of Kieron Dyer's stature. However, it appears a deal could still be on for the former Ipswich midfielder.
Newcastle United have cancelled the transfer of Kieron Dyer to West Ham. The reasons why Newcastle would cancel the transfer are currently unknown, but it is believed that Dyer could be willing to have another go at Newcastle this season.
Kieron Dyer is set for a transfer to West Ham from Newcastle. Sam Allardyce has told Dyer that he is free to leave the club and Curbishley is keen to add Dyer to his squad. A figure in the region of £6m has been agreed with Newcastle and Dyer is now ready to discuss personal terms.
Kieron Dyer is almost certainly set to leave Newcastle United after Sam Allardyce admitted Kieron had requested a transfer for personal reasons. One of the reasons suggested is that Kieron is eager to move closer to his family in London.
