Man United Back Up Set to Make West Ham Move

Old Trafford keeper set for Upton Park move.

West Ham are poised to make a move for Manchester United keeper Tomasz Kuszczak.
Kuszczak, 29, is out of contract with the Premier League champions and will become a free agent in the summer.
The Polish keeper has spent five years at Old Trafford but failed to secure a regular first-team place.
West Ham are expected to sell Robert Green during the summer following their relegation to the Championship and are looking to sign a quality replacement.
Despite his lack of match opportunities, Kuszczak brings with him a winning mentality and West Ham will hope he can help them gain promotion straight back into the Premier League.


It seems that Tomasz Kuszczak has taken the hint. The imminent retirement of Edwin van der Sar does not mean the Pole will take over between the sticks at Old Trafford. First Danish international Anders Lindegaard was brought in and now it appears that David de Gea will be winging his way to Manchester, leaving the Man United back-up with little option other than to leave the club.

A move to the Championship may seem like a step backwards, but with Robert Green seemingly set to leave Upton Park, Kuszczak will at least be guaranteed regular first team football, something the 29 year old has not enjoyed since his West Brom days.

Sir Alex Ferguson will more than likely not look to offer the Polish international a new contract in the summer and now is probably the right time for the keeper to move on after making just 30 Premier League starts in almost five years at the club.
