West Ham blasted by Osasuna

Last Updated: Tue, 28 Jan 2014 17:40

Osasuna have criticised West Ham following the breakdown of talks regarding Raoul Loe's move to Upton Park.

The Cameroonian travelled to London over the weekend to complete the deal but the negotiations came to an abrupt halt when the Hammers pulled out via e-mail just before his medical, with the reasoning being their loan signing of Antonio Nocerino from AC Milan.

The Osasuna board have now hit out at the Londoners' conduct during the talks, with sporting director Petar Vasiljevic describing the club as "two-faced" for not telling him about their other plans.

"The club received a firm offer from West Ham and we reached an agreement," Vasiljevic said. "It was then left in the player's hands to go ahead and pass the medical. He travelled to London with his agent where they waited and went to a hotel. Up until then everything went well.

"The following day when they had to undergo the tests they pulled out of the deal, blaming it on the fact that they signed someone else. I was then sent an e-mail confirming that West Ham had chosen to go with another player with different conditions and was a deal they had been working on for several weeks."
