West Ham have a made a surprise decision to put defender Anton Ferdinand up for sale according to the Daily Mirror.
The move is believed to be part of West Ham’s aim to cut the clubs’ wage bill radically, with Ferdinand believed to be on around Ã‚Â£1.2 million a year at Upton Park.
Ferdinand, 23, has on numerous occasions been rated as one of West Ham’s top prospects, and his powerful defensive performances attracted the attention of many top clubs. Ferdinand is also well known due to his family links with brother Rio and cousin Les.
The decision is sure to alert a number of Premiership clubs including Tottenham who reportedly had a bid turned down for the centre-back over a year ago.
The Daily Mirror claims that Ferdinand has struggled to win the admiration of manager Alan Curbishley since the ex-Charlton boss took over at Upton Park.
