West Ham chasing French full back

West Ham have had an offer for Saint Etienne full back Kevin Malcuit rejected, say French sources.

The 25-year-old defender, who can also operate on the right side of midfield was the subject of a concrete bid (size unreported) from the Hammers earlier today, according to le10sport.com.

However the source adds that United's bid -said to be "a good offer" - was instantly rejected by the Ligue 1 club with whom Malcuit has spent the last 18 months since moving from Chamois Niortais in an 800,000 deal.

* Jonathan Calleri's on/off move to Las Palmas appears to be on the verge of collapse with the Spanish side set to confirm the arrival of local boy Jese from PSG. The 23-year-old Argentine looked set to leave London for Spain but manager Slaven Bilic is understood to have had second thoughts about cutting his season-long loan short.

* Hull City's young centre half Harry Maguire is being linked with a potential summer move to West Ham, as well as one or two fellow Premier League clubs. Signed by the Tigers from Sheffield United in 2014 for 2.5million, the 23-year-old has just 18 months left on his contract and is said to be seeking a new challenge.

* West Ham are said to be one of a clubs targeting Manchester City's on-loan Joe Hart. With Adrian coming to the end of his current contract - although the club retain an option to extend it, should they so wish - the current Torino stopper would be a natural replacement for the Spanish former number one.
