According to De Telegraaf, West Ham's bid of £3million (for a player rated in the £5-6million bracket) was recently rejected by the player's current club, PSV.

And it is said that could alert fellow Premier League sides such as Newcastle, who have also been actively monitoring Zoet's situation despite being unwilling to meet his current asking price.

* Former Hammer Ravel Morrison is on his way to Mexico's MX League after agreeing to join Atlas.

Still only 24, the troubled midfielder's career has already taken in spells at Manchester United, Birmingham, Queens Park Rangers, Lazio as well as West Ham.

But having failed to shine in Serie A last season, Morrison is now heading for even warmer climes; he is expected to complete a free transfer to Atlas - who are currently 13th in the table - within the next day or two.

* Crystal Palace are being linked with an £8million move for West Ham's Jose Fonte.

The former Southampton defender, who moved to east London in an £8million deal back in January has failed to settle and could be a surprise out ahead of this week's transfer deadline.

* Summer transfer targets Kevin Wimmer and Keita Balde have completed moves to Stoke City and Ligue 1 Monaco respectively.

The Potters are reported to have paid around £18million for Austiran defender Wimmer, whilst Balde will set the French club back some €30million. West Ham emerged as a late contender to sign the 22-year-old striker in mid-July.
