Report: Hammers pull out of defender chase

kjaerWest Ham are reported to have pulled out of the race for central defender Simon Kjaer according to London 24.com.

New Lille boss Herve Renard knows he cannot keep the star man at the club in the face of big interest  with Fenerbache now favourites to sign the player at £8 million.

Both ourselves and Liverpool had expressed interest in Kjaer but at the price he is reported to have proved too rich for our blood whilst Liverpool are close to doing a deal for Charlton youngster Joe Gomez.

ClaretandHugh  has already revealed that new boss Slaven Bilic is keen to sign a top central defender but the club has other targets after Winston Reid, James Tokins and James Collins suffered various injuries throughout last season.
