Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud again refused to name the team who had outbid Rangers, but Faubert´s agent has confirmed it is West Ham who have secured a deal for the 23-year-old.
Agent Philippe Sol told the Sunday Herald that West Ham had offered far in excess of Rangers´ valuation of Faubert, who can play in defence or midfield. He said: "It was substantially more than any cash on the table from Rangers and Julien was given an ultimatum by Bordeaux: West Ham or nowhere."
