Sodje on his way out of Griffin Park?
The story has been floating around the papers for a couple of days now and seems increasingly likely since West Ham's promotion on Monday that Sam Sodje could be on his way out of Griffin Park.

Martin Allen is yet to comment but the boss did say previously,

"We're looking to strengthen during the Summer and exits will be minimal"

Sodje has made it clear in recent weeks and has shown his desire to play at the highest level, although Blackburn are the more established West Ham could be looking more likely for the Nigerian as they are looking for a partner for Anton Ferdinand as Tomas Repka will be released on June 30th.

Sam's ambition is undoubtable but so is Martin Allen's and the boss is unlikely to take anything less then £750,000 for the central defender who scored seven goals last season.

Both clubs have admitted an interest and Sodje seems keen to join the Premiership but neither has made an official bid for the player however it is expected over the weekend that one of the clubs will, it's just a question of whether of not Allen is willing to sell and has a willing replacement for the 'Fans Player of the Season'
