Trevor Sinclair yesterday joined West Ham in a cash-plus- players deal from Queen's Park Rangers, who have taken the Northern Ireland internationals Iain Dowie and Keith Rowland, plus pounds 2m in exchange.

Sinclair sees the move as an opportunity to recover his form. He said: "I wouldn't be coming back to the Premier League if I didn't want to recapture my best form - that's what I'm here for. And I'm going to work hard to make sure it happens."

Manchester United have abandoned the search for new players before the deadline for Uefa competitions. Only players signed before tomorrow can play in the rest of this season's European competitions.

The Leeds striker Rod Wallace has turned down a move to Middlesbrough. The clubs had agreed a fee of pounds 1.5m. Neil Ruddock has refused a loan move from Liverpool to Tranmere.

The full-back Richard Edghill has rejected a lucrative offer to stay at Manchester City and could leave for nothing.
