West Ham co-chairman David Gold has knocked back reports that the club want to sign QPR striker Loic Remy.
A supporter tweeted the Hammers chairman earlier, saying: "please Mr Gold please sign remy every west ham fan would be happy with that signing'. Reports in the Star today followed on from rumours earlier that the club were set to make a move for the former Marseille star.
Gold however, did not agree and rejected the suggestion that West Ham would move to sign the France international- on the grounds that the rape case hanging over Remy would represent too much of a risk.
He said: "It's a risky enough business signing a striker let alone one that might go to prison."
Remy was charged on 16 May with the rape of a 34 year old woman in London and will face trial before the end of the summer.
