West Ham are set to make a move for out-of-favour West Brom midfielder Graham Dorrans, according to Sky Sports.

The Hammers have identified the Scottish midfielder as a potential bargain-buy as they look to build upon their Top 10 finish last term. The versatile midfielder was told he was free to leave the Hawthornes in January, where West Ham failed with a bid to sign him.

Newly-promoted Cardiff City are also in the running to sign the 26-year old playmaker. Dorrans is an experienced player at Premier League level, and was once a rumoured target for Arsenal, but it appears as if his days as a member of West Brom are over, with the club inviting offers for the player with the ‘highest bid’ policy in place.

West Ham see Dorrans as a potential replacement for Mohamed Diame, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal and Everton this summer, as they prepare for numerous bids for their prized asset. Diame is believed to not be searching for a route out of Upton Park, with the club ready to offer him a new long-term contract to repay his for his efforts this past season.

Dorrans has two years left to run on his current contract at the club, and is searching for an escape route.
