Hammers move for Steed

26 Aug 2006 - 10:04:54

West Ham United's managing director Paul Aldridge has confirmed the club hope to sign Fulham contract rebel Steed Malbranque before the transfer window closes.

The French playmaker has been banished from the Fulham squad after refusing to sign an extension to his contract, which expires at the end of the season.

Newcastle United, Middlesbrough and Manchester City have all expressed an interest in the 26-year-old, only to be put off by his extravagant salary demands.

However, Aldridge is confident the Hammers will be able to agree terms with both Fulham and Malbranque.

"We would like to bring in one, possibly two more faces, and we will work hard between now and the end of the month to do that," said Aldridge.

"Malbranque is obviously one of the people Alan (Pardew) has targeted, and I would hope we will soon have positive discussions with Fulham."

West Ham have already been busy in the transfer market this summer, bringing in Lee Bowyer, Jonathan Spector, Carlton Cole, Tyrone Mears, John Paintsil, George McCartney and Robert Green.
