Sky Sports Update: Hammers Make DJ Bid
Earlier today Sky Sports reported that QPR had made a £1.25 million bid for Blackpool striker DJ Campbell - an offer that is thought to match his much rumoured release clause.
The sports outlet are now reporting this evening that West Ham have also offered £1.25 million for the 29 year old, and that both they and QPR have been given permission to speak to the striker who scored 13 goals last term.
It is also understood that both Sunderland and Stoke are tracking the forward, although neither are yet to make a bid.
However, with DJ stating that he wishes to remain in the Premier League to further his England ambitions, it would appear that the Hammers are out of the running, unless he uses them to leverage a better deal elsewhere.
QPR might also struggle to get their man; Peterborough striker Craig Mackail-Smith has rejected a move to the London club after revealing that manager Neil Warnock could not give assurances about his future.
This one still has a fair distance to run folks, and as always, we'll being you all the news as it happens here on Vital.
