French media make fresh claims today that West Ham have an agreement in principle with SM Caen midfielder Ngolo Kanté’s representatives about a possible deal.
The player’s agents, Mondial Promotion are working with Excelfoot’s Mark McKay, the son of the Willie McKay.
The player was proposed to West Ham by Mark McKay. The Hammers will need to offer a good €10m in order to sign the player but reports say there is an “agreement in principle”, at least orally, with Kanté’s representatives to do just that.
The Hammers might want a loan option first but Kante may well be a back up option if a deal cannot be reached with Alex Song as reported yesterday.
