Croatian striker Marko Livaja – currently with Rubin Kazan – is believed to be on loan at the Irons.

The Rubin Kazan striker joined the Russian outfit last season but struggled to adapt and failed to find the net.

According to reports in the Russian media, Livaja is currently on loan at a team from the Premier League and West Ham is his likeliest destination.

Fellow Croatian Slaven Bilic is familiar with the striker and Russian newspaper Business Gazeta report that a loan move to Upton Park could be on the cards.

Livaja, a Croatian Under-21 international, made his name at Italian side Atalanta.

  1. Nah think we could do a lot better.
    Austin or Hernandez are proven goal scorers, this bloke has done sod all, scored sod all and apparently has a seriously bad attitude problem.
    Please no

  2. This one cries out as a sa….. last managers signing. A failure in Russia..? Hardly aiming for the stars is it…..

  3. Never seen him play never heard of him,but Slav must rate him and know him,
    All the reports are saying he is already on loan not going to be,so it sounds like a done deal,
    He could turn out to be another Sakho so I will keep quite until its official and I have seen him perform,

  4. He must be the only striker left in europe that hasn’t been linked with the club up until now.
    like you bubs I have never heard of him or seen him play.

  5. Never seen him,never heard of him so i cant say whether he is good or useless.Simples as that.Im sure some expert will know all about him though after trawling through wiki,stats sites & the like,lol.Croatia U21s usually have good technique & ability though.Now i will go into my bunker,bubs bunker is only a one seater 😉

  6. This guy would come in on loan i guess,not as a direct choice between him hernandez,austin or wjoever else.Clearly seen as one for the future or a back-up.I know nothing about the kid,but i assume as one of Slavs compatriots he knows far more than any of us do.Got to trust Slav sees something in him,at least he has probably watched him before making assumptions about him,lol 😉

  7. Good to see you are staying within Bill’s guidelines stingray. Lol

  8. Sorry essex,aint got a clue what you are on about,lol,gone right over my head im afraid 😉

  9. We were all put in our place last night from Bill Iron, have a quick look at ‘Jenks agrees to irons return’

  10. Haha,ahh right ok.Well i think you are getting paranoid since the hitmen turned up recently.My comment was nothing to do with what you said,lol,calm down,relax,deep breath 😀

  11. If he is on trial then its something & nothing,take him or fling him back into the wilderness of russia,lol.Essex thinks he has a contract on him here atm from the hitmen Sting.He has gone into hiding on wetpants.Seeking sanctuary amongst the formations & line-ups 😀

  12. There has been times i posted a comment & no replys, little while later someone else makes the same comment & bang…. they get dozens..

    • Lol,i guess your on about pants Essex.I dont use it as far as commenting but i have seen it many times.A no name makes a good comment-No reply.One of the Bosom Buddies Crew say the same-replys flood it.Is the simple reason i dont use it.Well that & the continous formations,line-ups & love ins about eachothers articles.You should do an article about being sent to Coventry essex,hahaha 😉

  13. 191 doesnt work Spoonie.More maths lessons needed,lol

  14. He only has a bad reputation because his middle name is Sentov
