West Ham are waiting for Norwich City to make their feelings known on a permanent Matt Jarvis switch to Carrow Road.
City boss Alex Neill is known to be keen to get a deal done but is holding fire until the former Wolves man returns from a knee injury.
The £9 million Hammers signing has made a good start to life with Premier League newcomers who currently sit in 15th position and should they remain as a Premier League force a deal is likely to be done.
The Hammers are ready to cut their losses on the player and would accept around £5 million but aren’t expecting the Canaries to make a move in January.
A well placed source inside Upton Park told us: ” If they stay up and he has a good season, they are bound to look at it but we would probably do any business at the end of the season although he has done well so you never know.”
Jarvis was injured in the last match against Manchester City but is expected back early next month.
