We need to talk about Kevin?
Various media reports suggest West Ham have bid £6 million for Everton's Kevin Mirallas. I've always thought he's a good player and he scored a cracking goal against WHU at Upton Park in the 2-2 FA Cup tie last season. He's a Belgian international, though appears to have fallen out a little with Roberto Martinez and clearly has a bit of an attitude: he managed to take the ball off the elected penalty taker Leighton Baines against West Brom last season and then hit the post before being subbed. He's not an exact replacement for Stewart Downing, but is a very dangerous attacking player (21 goals in 88 games for Everton) and I'd be happy to have him at WHU. The Standard also claims we're looking at Tottenham's Aaron Lennon — presumably so we can say we've had both Lennon and McCartney at Upton Park.
