The Chinese way

Andy Carroll has been the subject of three separate approaches from Chinese Super League clubs in recent days.

According to Ken Dyer, writing for the Standard, the Hammers have fended off three enquiries for the England international ahead of today's transfer deadline in China.

Tianjin Quanjian, Hebei China Fortune and Shandong Luneng Taishan are all understood to have made enquiries regarding Carroll's availability within the past 72 hours - all of whom have been told the striker is not for sale.

Chinese clubs have once again been spending big in 2017, after they sent shockwaves through the game in 2016 when offering mega-money deals to several European-based players.

Last month former Hammer Carlos Tevez agreed to join Shanghai Greenland Shenhua after being offered $765,000 per week - double that earned by Euope's top earner, Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid - whilst former Chelsea star Oscar bid farewell to the Premier League in order to join Shanghai SIPG (who also signed Brazilian international Hulk).

However the Chinese Goverment recently announced plans to halt the influx of foreign players - just after local star Zhang Chengdong became the most expensive domestic transfer in history, moving from Beijing Guoan to Hebei China Fortune for $21.6m.
