Jelavic goes for £4m
A very good bit of business to get £4million from Chinese second division club Beijing Renhe for Nikica Jelavic. That's £1m more than we paid for him! Lord Sugar would be quite pleased with Karren Brady for that. Jelavic's pace looked to have gone when he appeared in his early games as a sub, but he showed he could still finish with a great goal against Wolves and a poacher's effort against Newcastle. He wasn't going to get many games with Emenike at the club so a good deal all round. Jelavic is pictured carrying a bunch of flowers as he is welcomed to China - though can't confirm if these were sent by my fellow season ticket holder Matt, who predicted Jelavic would never score for the Hammers.
