Published Add your comment

It is believed that West Ham are interested in signing Tom Huddlestone from Hull City before the end of the transfer window, according to the Mirror.

The midfielder has been capped four times by England and arrived at Hull in 2013 from Tottenham in a £5 million deal.

Huddlestone has appeared 78 times for his current side and his manager discussed his situation with the press after Hull's 1-1 draw with Wolves on Sunday.

Speaking after the game Steve Bruce said: "I am sure West ham, like anybody, knows he has a buy-out in his contract and if they get to that figure I am powerless."

"The agents will be touting him around everywhere, which I know they are. But there's nothing I can do."

The 54-year-old understands that with his team's relegation to the second tier of English football, he will struggle to hold on to any of his bigger names who wish to play in the Premier League.

No deal for Barton

The Hammers look to improve their squad depth after Slaven Bilic's team suffered a loss to Leicester City on Saturday and a move for Joey Barton fell through last week after a fan protest over the controversial English midfielder. 

The vast majority of his squad would have faced pay-cuts since losing their place in the top tier in May which also lends to the case of many players leaving the club.
