The New Zealand defender has been stalling on a new contract for months now, despite a sizable pay rise reportedly being offered by the club.
With interest from several clubs capable of offering him Champions League football however, it is understandable that the West Ham star is having his head turned.
The Hammers would no doubt prefer to get something for him in January rather than risk losing him for free in the summer, so both the Gunners and United could get the defensive reinforcements they so badly need.
