Hammers need more bodies in the centre of the park next season.
West Ham United are keen on signing unwanted West Bromwich Albion midfield player Graham Dorrans this summer, according to reports in the Sun.
The Scotland international has been at the Hawthorns for the past five seasons now, having first arrived in the Midlands from Livingston in Jan 2008.
And in the intervening five-year period, the 26-year-old has featured in 151 matches in total in all competitions for the Baggies, scoring 23 goals in the process, including 18 strikes in his 131 league outings for the club.
However last season, despite Steve Clarke’s men enjoying a highly successful Premier League campaign themselves, Dorrans though was only a bit-part player at times under the Scot, making just 28 appearances all season long for West Brom, with his manager informing him back at the turn of the year that he would be free to find himself a new club come this summer.
As a result, Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is thought to be interested in bring the player to Upton Park for next season, especially in light of fellow midfield player Gary O’Neil’s recent refusal to put pen to paper on the new deal that the East Londoners had offered the Irishman.
