West Ham co-chairman David Gold has rubbished talk the club are set to hand former Sunderland defender Titus Bramble a trial.
Reports recently have indicated the 31-year-old could be handed a run out by the Hammers in a pre-season friendly after joining up with the club following his release by the Black Cats.
While Sam Allardyce is thought to be keen on improving his defensive options, Gold has rubbished reports they have any interest in Bramble, claiming he is only training with the club for fitness purposes.
"He is currently with the squad simply to maintain his fitness levels," Gold told Sports Direct News.
"He's an out-of-contract player and unattached and thus needs some facilities to keep himself ready for his next move."
