West Ham to raise bid for Derby's Barnes

West Ham United boss Alan Curbishley is set to offer £5 million for Derby midfielder Giles Barnes.

The Sun says Hammers chief Curbs has had offers of £2.5m and £3.5m turned down by Rams, who want £6m.

Yet while Pride Park boss Billy Davies insists he does not want to sell, he is likely to accept the improved bid knowing Barnes, 19, wants to go.
