Curbs: West Ham's Zamora not for sale

West Ham United boss Alan Curbishley insists striker Bobby Zamora is not for sale.

Zamora, 26, has been linked with moves to Fulham and Reading in the January transfer window despite being sidelined with tendinitis since August.

But Curbishley said: "Bobby Zamora was one of the players that finished last season so strongly and at the start of this season he started in the team with Craig Bellamy.

"He got injured up at Bristol Rovers and we haven't seen him since. He is in my plans but we have to wait for him to get fit.

"He always seems to be linked with Fulham but I had dinner with Lawrie Sanchez the other day and he never mentioned anything to me at all - and he had every opportunity because we were together for about 10 hours.

"I think maybe managers are wondering why Bobby isn't playing and don't realise he is injured and has been out for three months."
