'Derisory' midfielder bid rejected

West Ham have seen an opening bid of 5million for Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter rejected, according to fresh reports.

The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to West Ham for several weeks, yet despite being valued by his club at the 12-15million mark was the target of a 5million opening offer from the Hammers today, according to a tabloid newspaper.

Unsurprisingly the offer is said to have been instantly rejected by a furious Bournemouth, who were said to be "angered" by West Ham's risible bid - despite the player's willingness to make the move from the south coast to London.

David Moyes' attempts to bolster his midfield are yet to bear any fruit, despite interest in a string players such as Jonjo Shelvey, Francis Coquelin, Joe Allen and Leander Dendoncker, who was linked with a move to West Ham yesterday.

Meanwhile rumours suggesting that Moyes will have to sell before being able to make his move in the transfer market persist.
