West Ham United and Sunderland are set to go head to head in the battle to sign out-of-favour Tottenham Hotspur wide man Aaron Lennon for next season, according to reports in the Metro.

The some-time England international was only really used as a bit-part player at White Hart Lane in the previous campaign, with Lennon spending the majority of his time at the north London club warming the substitutes’ bench, as opposed to actually getting any real game time.

And as a result, Lennon missed out on being selected as part of England head coach Roy Hodgson’s 23-man World Cup squad for this summer’s tournament in Brazil, with the speedy winger not even chosen to be one of the seven players placed on standby for the competition.

Consequently, Lennon’s days in the capital now appear to be numbered, with both the Hammers and the Black Cats understood to be lining up moves for the 27-year-old, who is contracted to Spurs until June 2016.
