Having spurned the chance to sign Javier Hernandez from Manchester United – who on Monday sealed a move to Bayer Leverkusen – following his ludicrous £90,000 goal bonus demand that West Ham refused to agree to, the east London outfit have focused their efforts on securing the signature of Jelavic.
And, it seems that the deal could be announced shortly, as BBC reporter Adam Bridge has tweeted a snap of the Croatia international in a West Ham shirt on the Upton Park pitch.

On Monday morning, Jelavic was in the English capital undergoing his medical with the Irons, which judging by this picture, appears to have been successful. The Guardian claim that the fee agreed is £3m.
The Hammers have confirmed that Alex Song will spend another season on loan from Barcelona, while Chelsea winger Victor Moses has too joined the club on a temporary deal, their official website announced.
