The Mirror today speculates that Chelsea are set to knock back our loan offer for Tal Ben Haim and instead demand a fee of £2m for his transfer. Having signed him for nothing in the summer the Blues are obviously looking to recoup some of the money they look set to splash on Branislav Ivanovic. Again, with reference to the Wes Brown link, do we need another bloody defender?

PS – Alan Hutton has also been linked. Grrrrr! Sam also said:

‘Tal Ben Haim won’t be let go by Chelsea, as they don’t have any centre-halves themselves. He’s playing every week for them.’
