Adrian linked with Spanish return

West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian is being linked with a return to his former club following a stop/start season at the Olympic Stadium.

The 31-year-old stopper joined West Ham in July 2013 on a free transfer from La Liga side Real Betis before going on to become the club's regular first choice goalkeeper.

However the arrival of Joe Hart last summer on a season-long loan unsettled the Seville-born star and the former's imminent return to parent club Manchester City has failed to dissuade the Spaniard from believing his future may lie elsewhere.

One potential destination could be first love Betis, Adrian's only other professional club, for whom he first signed in 2006 as an 18-year-old prospect.

The Béticos recently agreed a pre-contract deal with Espanyol youngster Pau Lopez but are seeking a second, more established goalkeeper to mentor and play alongside the 23-year-old.

And former charge Adrian would fit the bill perfectly - even though his potential departure could leave West Ham without a recognised goalkeeper come the end of the season.
