Former West Ham player Savio Nsereko arrested in Thailand

Former West Ham winger Savio Nsereko has been arrested by police in Thailand for claiming to his family that he was abducted, before then demanding a sum of €3,000 [£2,500].

The 23-year-old had spent €25,000 [£20,000] on his trip before he allegedly thought about taking the  unusual measures to refill his holiday bank account, a report by the Bangkok Post states.

Having signed with West Ham from Brescia for a sum of €11 million [£9m] in 2009, the Uganda-born attacker has since enjoyed spells at Fiorentina, Bologna and 1860 Munich before ending up at German third division side SpVgg Unterhaching.
