West Ham are keen on Manchester United keeper Sam Johnstone who was left shattered after missing out with Aston Villa in the Championship play off final.
The stopper was on loan to the midlands outfit last season and is represented by the Unique Sports Management who also look after the interests of Aaron Cresswell, Michail Antonio, Pedro Obiang and Cheick Kouyate.
Ryan Fredericks has also recently joined the same stable and, as we reported last night, the Fulham defender heads into talks with the Hammers on Monday with a long term deal now firmly on the cards.
It’s probably no coincidence given USM’s strong links to the Hammers that Tom Cairney – another of the group’s clients – has also been linked with the club.
And Newcastle central defender and skipper Jamaal Lascelles is another they look after which once again may account for the regularly reported links to the 24 year old.
