Hammer eye Fulham swoop

West Ham United are eyeing a double-swoop on Championship club Fulham, ahead of the summer transfer window.

25-year-old Ryan Fredericks is a key target of current manager David Moyes, who was at Craven Cottage earlier this week to watch Fulham take on Leeds Utd in a Championship clash.

The Potters Bar-born defender - who began his career at Tottenham - is available on a free transfer this summer, three years after moving to Fulham from Bristol City who he left just 26 DAYS after joining in 2015, citing personal reasons.

Additionally, West Ham are keen to revive the club's interest in former transfer target Tom Cairney, a player whom Fulham were unwilling to part company with during January transfer window.

West Ham were ready to offer in the region of 15million to sign the 27-year-old, but the Cottagers wanted a fee closer to double that in order to tempt them to part with the former Hull and Blackburn midfielder.

In other transfer news, Newcastle United could be set to reignite their interest in Javier Hernandez, should they retain their Premier League status.

West Ham's 29-year-old striker rejected the chance to join Newcastle last summer when opting to move to West Ham instead, but having been barely used by David Moyes is considering finding a new club instead of remaining in east London for a second season.
