The same strip was worn the following season in two League Cup ties against Stoke. So he thought he was bigger than West Ham and deserved a lucrative move to China, no matter the damage to the club, who opposed selling. It’s understood that the manufacturer will not cut relations with the London club, despite fears they could walk away after shirt sponsor Three suspended their deal with the Blues this week and asking for their logo to be removed from the kits.
