Fears the centre half is ready to run down his contract
Mirror Football are reporting West Ham owners David Sullivan and David Gold are resigned to the fact Matthew Upson will walk out of the club on a free transfer at the end of the season.
This ‘exclusive’ bit of news has come on the same day the Mirror have run an interview with Gold himself, so there’s probably some truth to it.
31-year-old Upson has been dragging his heels over renewing his £60,000 p/w contract and is reportedly considering his options in January.
A source told the paper:
We have tried to keep him. If he feels he can get more money elsewhere then good luck to him.
Where next for Mr. Upson, then?
