West Ham are understood to have beaten off a challenge from Burnley to land Hull City winger Robert Snodgrass.

Both United and the Clarets offered bids worth 10million for the Scottish international, who has opted for a move to London over Lancashire.

News of the deal broke on the KUMB Forum late Thursday night. West Ham will pay 8million for Snodgrass with a further 2million to follow via add-ons.

The player's exit was all but confirmed earlier in the day by Tigers boss Marco Silva. "He has not trained since they did a deal with West Ham," he told the media.

"It is possible it will be done in the next few hours. For 10 days he has not been available to work with us and has told us he wants to leave."

West Ham had previously bid 6million for Snodgrass, who has made more than 100 appearances in the Premier League despite playing outside of the top flight his entire career until joining Norwich in 2012.

He has also represented his country 21 times having previously appeared at Under 19, 20 and 21 youth levels.

Snodgrass is set to undergo a medical on Friday ahead of the move and should be available for the visit of Manchester City next Wednesday (1 February).
