Indeed we have unconfirmed reports coming into our offices that the Ipswich Town defender is currently at Chadwell Heath ready for a Hammers medical.
ClaretandHugh revealed this morning that the deal for Nice left back Timothee Koloadzieczak looked to be in trouble and added later the Hammers were ready to move on to new targets.
The first was Martin Olsson who manager Sam Allardyce has wanted for a long time but the Irons were again snubbed when Norwich City rejected a £4 million bid out of hand.
However, our understanding is – and we stress theese are unconfirmed reports -that Creswell is strong possible to agree terms today or tomorrow.
West Ham are refusing to name names until the player puts pen to paper but told ClaretandHugh: “We want two left backs and expect to sign one within 24 hours.”
Cresswell is one of the Championship’s most highly rated left backs and was included in the PFA Team of the Year for that division at the end of last season
