Hammers reject Harewood bid

West Ham United have rejected a 3m bid for striker Marlon Harewood, according to reports.

Harewood - who has been told by United that he is considered surplus to requirements - was the subject of a 3m offer (consisting of 2m cash plus incentives) from Premiership newcomers Birmingham City this morning.

However the Blues' initial approach has been rejected, according to news emanating this lunchtime.

Harewood joined the Hammers four years ago and soon became the club's first choice striker.

But after a miserable season last term, he has conceded that his future lies elsewhere.

West Ham are likely to hold out for around 4.5m for the former Forest man, who has scored 56 goals since moving to the East End in November 2003.

Alan Curbishley - who paid over the odds to land Matthew Upson from Birmingham in the January transfer window - will no doubt be keen to recoup the lions share of that 6m outlay should Harewood end up at St Andrews.
