The 23-year-old West Ham centre-back is expected to complete the £8m transfer today after yesterday's medical.

There were no tears at Upton Park from Hammers fans as their "under-achiever" moved on.

Many suggesting he has long lived in the shadow of older brother Rio.

Keane: "Maybe Anton needed a new environment to get his career on to a new level.

"He has had a very good club in West Ham, don't get me wrong, but sometimes when a player comes through the ranks and they have been there since they were a young kid, I think sometimes they get to a bit of a crossroads. They think, which road am I going to go on? Am I going to go to another level or just stay where I am?"

West Ham's manager, Alan Curbishley, was rather irritated yesterday as a SKY TV female reporter 'took him to the cleaners' over the Ferdinand deal.

Curbishley ... acting as cocky as ever ... barked that former Toon star Craig Bellamy "will NOT be leaving West Ham, and that is official!"

She replied: "You told me the same thing last week about Anton Ferdinand."

Curbishley stammered, lost control of his bowels, took time-out to get his brain in gear and said: "I don't want to talk about it! That is in the past!"

What a prat!
