West Ham look set to play Liverpool in a glamorous post-season fixture in Mauritius, according to reports.

The friendly fixture between the two Premeir League clubs has provisionally been pencilled in for Sunday, May 18 - a week after the culmination of this season's Premier League campaign.

Liverpool representative Olly Dale, the club's Director of Sales, said: "I'm very impressed with everything in Mauritius, it's a great country. We've had a very warm welcome extended to us here. We look forward to any prospective game with the knowledge that this is a fantastic country."

Meanwhile Mark Gibbon, who has been widely reported as representing West Ham United's interests, added: "It's a fantastic country, it's a fantastic welcome. The people are beautiful. I'm very surprised how professional the facilities are, good enough to host any international event here. I'm very impressed indeed."

The game is scheduled to take place in Mauritius' Anjalay Stadium, a 30,000-capacity arena situated in Belle Vue Maurel. Also used for racing (cars and bikes), the stadium received a multi-million overhaul in 2003 and is used for many of the country's major sporting events.

Neither club has yet confirmed the fixture.
