Derby boss Paul Jewell ridiculed claims the club have sold teenage star Giles Barnes to West Ham for £5million.

Barnes was linked with a move to the Hammers over the summer, with an apparent £3.5million offer rejected at the time, and now it has been suggested boss Alan Curbishley has finally landed the 19-year-old, who will move to Upton Park when the transfer window opens next week.

When asked about the Barnes deal, Jewell replied: "Very nice. It´s a nice Christmas present - I just wish I knew about it. Maybe Santa Claus will drop the cheque down the chimney!"
