Albion chairman: Dorrans not for sale

The Hammers today upped their bid for the Scotland international to

£5million but Peace has told the Hammers they are wasting

their time. The Baggies have no plans to sell 23-year-old Dorrans,

who signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract in January. Peace

said: “Details of a third bid from West Ham for Graham Dorrans have

been leaked to the media. “This offer is completely unwelcome and,

like West Ham’s previous two bids, it has been rejected out of

hand. “I have personally told West Ham they are wasting their time.

“Graham is not for sale – to West Ham or any other club. “I cannot

make myself any clearer on this subject. “As far as we are

concerned, that is the end of the matter.” Peace added: “As ever,

Graham is being a consummate professional and getting on with his

pre-season training. “We are now looking forward to seeing him play

an integral part for the club in the Barclays Premier League next

season.”
