Hammers linked with Gudjohnsen - again

West Ham are once again being linked with a move for Monaco striker Eidur Gudjohnsen.

The Icelandic striker was close to joining the Hammers under the Bjorgolfur Gudmundsson regime but opted instead to remain in Barcelona, for whom he was playing at the time.

However fresh speculation suggests that the Hammers are looking to take Gudjohnsen on loan for the remainder of the season - with sources in Iceland claiming that the 31-year-old will be flying to London tomorrow morning in order to enter talks with West Ham.

Any such deal is likely to be on a loan basis with view to a permanent deal at the end of the season.

Gudjohnsen, who joined Monaco on a two-year deal from Barca last summer has failed to make an impact at the Stade Louis II and has been linked with a number of clubs in recent weeks - including fellow Premier League side Blackburn, from whom West Ham are currently looking to sign Benni McCarthy.

''This story got old a year ago, it's got to the point where I don't believe a single word of it and I'll believe he's coming when I see it.''

''I would not like this signing one bit... He's made it clear that he doesn't want to play for us by rejecting us twice... We need players that want to be part of the squad, and who don't want ridiculously inflated pay-packets at the age of 30+!''
