Hammers in for Hall?

West Ham are being linked with a move for highly-rated non-league winger Chris Hall, according to reports emerging today.

20-year-old Hall - who has recently had trials with Premiership outfits Leicester City and Southampton - is being linked with the Hammers, as Alan Pardew continues his search for fresh talent with which to bolster his under-strength squad.

The young winger, who currently plies his trade with UniBond League Division One outfit Lincoln United has attracted interest from several league clubs in recent months since moving to Ashby Avenue last summer.

Lincoln boss John Wilkinson, who signed Hall from neighbours Grantham last summer had this to say about his young star:

"Chris is definitely one for the future. He has bags of pace and is very talented and a vital member of my squad.

"He's a tremendous asset for the club."

Meanwhile, there has been no news on Stijn Vreven since we revealed last Friday how the Belgian defender was still hopeful of clinching a move from Bundesliga side Kaiserslautern to East London.
