Tensions rise at West Ham

TENSIONS between West Ham United manager Gianfranco Zola and co-chairman David Sullivan have grown after the club withdrew a new contract offer to midfielder Valon Behrami.

The Swiss was expecting to sign a five-year deal at the start of last month, but it is said Sullivan is keen to sell him in the summer.

The 24-year-old has three years left on his deal, but Zola wanted to tie him down. He was offered £30,000 a week, still less than half of what some of West Ham's highest earners are paid.
