West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola has become exasperated over talks with out of contract Lucas Neill and is more concerned with strengthening other areas of the team. The Australia international is now believed to have spoken with Turkish giants Galatasaray about a move to Istanbul.

Zola said: "He was in talks with West Ham, then I find out he was in talks with Galatasaray and with Sunderland. Now I don't know what's going on.

"But he's out, and that's no good for him. For the moment, he's not our priority in that position."
