Cambiasso Turns Hammers Down
Esteban Cambiasso has turned down a big-money contract from West Ham, according to reports in Italy. Leicester City are trying to re-sign the 34-year-old Argentine, who was last season’s player of the year, but other clubs are interested in taking Cambiasso next season.
The former Inter Milan star is out of contract at the end of this month and has yet to commit to another season with City and according to Sky Italia, who stated he had rejected the Hammer’s approach, he is considering a move to the MLS, where he would become a Designated Player and earn a big pay package.

HUTH LOOKS SET TO STAY A FOX
Leicester City are lining up a £2.5m bid for defender Robert Huth, according to reports.
The Stoke City man impressed during a six-month loan at the King Power Stadium by helping the Foxes win their relegation battle in the Premier League.
The 30-year-old, who played 14 games of Leicester’s ‘great escape’, has one year to run on his existing deal at the Britannia, and Nigel Pearson is keen to tie up a permanent deal, according to The Mirror.
