The Daily Star – come on fellas it must be true, what a paper – claim that Harry Redknapp is preparing a fresh bid for Nicolas Anelka! Unless I have been caught in a time warp was this not the case a year ago, surely this could not happen now if it did not then?

Anelka has been hankering for a move to a team in the top four but with him already having a ‘history’ with two of them and the other two unlikely to move for him – although it is claimed United could be in the market for him – this is something that can be almost completely ruled out, he has also said that he is happy to stay with Bolton, if this means anything!

I really wanted Anelka to arrive last summer – and actually thought for a brief moment that he would. The reasons he would come to us now would be for the extra money – maybe – and the realisation that we are in actual fact going somewhere, with Bolton quite possibly looking like going in the other direction now?

Silly season is well and truly in full swing with this latest claim though is it not – could anyone really see Anelka signing now?
