West Ham are being linked with one of the Turkish Super Lig's top goalkeepers.

Reports emanating from Turkey this morning suggest that West Ham are taking a close look at Trabzonspor stopper Onur Kivrak.

The 29-year-old is said to have been courted by Slaven Bilic during his previous role at Besiktas and is seen as an ideal replacement for Adrian and Darren Randolph, both of whom have been tipped to move on this summer.

Nicknamed 'Butterfly' by fans of Trabzonspor, Kivrak - who represented his country at Euro 16 last summer - is out of contract at the end of next season (2017/18). His contract is understood to contain a release clause triggered at bids of Ä10million.

* Meanwhile a further purported Super Lig target has rejected reports linking him with West Ham or Scottish Premier League outfit Celtic. 27-year-old Hasan Ali Kaldirim, who has been linked with a move to the UK this summer by the Turkish media stressed that he has no intentionas of leaving current club Fenerbahce.

"Iíve been at this club for six years," he told local media. "People know me as ĎFenerbahce's Hasan Alií and thatís a great thing for me.

"Itís normal that Iíve been receiving offers from other clubs because I am playing for Turkeyís biggest club. But none of these offers matters to me right now. I am only focused on my team and I want to stay at Fenerbahce for many more years."
