West Ham United could trigger the £1m release clause of Yakubu Aiyegbeni from Blackburn Rovers. The Sun reports he will make a return to the Premiership to the newly promoted side.
Sam Allardyce, sacked by Blackburn Rovers in 2011, might see this as getting ‘one over’ on his successor Steve Kean as he looks to build a squad ready for the coming season. This will be ‘Big Sam’s’ second signing from a relegated side after signing goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen from Bolton Wanderers on a free Transfer.
At the age of 29, Yakubu, a Nigerian striker, could see this as his last transfer in football. He has previously played for Portsmouth, Middlesbrough, Everton and Leicester City scoring a total of 114 goals.
