Hammers are not happy with Spurs; FOOTBALL SHORTS: GUDJOHNSEN.

TOTTENHAM'S last-ditch attempt to sign Eidur Gudjohnsen on loan has reignited the bad blood between themselves and West Ham from last January's transfer window.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp tried to sign Craig Bellamy a year ago but Hammers chief executive Scott Duxbury vowed never to sell players to his club's "local rivals", with the Wales star joining Manchester City.

New co-owner David Sullivan has reacted angrily to Spurs making a late move to take Gudjohnsen from Monaco, after the Icelander had undergone a medical and looked set to join Gianfranco Zola's squad.

Sullivan said: "We thought we had a deal and the player had even had a medical. We then heard that Tottenham were trying to speak to the player. I can't say I am happy about it but I believe in Karma and what goes around, comes around."
