Hammers keen to land Moon

29 June 2009 06:35
West Ham United have made an approach for Panathinaikos defender Bryce Moon, skysports.com understands. The South African full-back has been mooted as a long-term target for the Hammers, with Gianfranco Zola a known admirer of the 22-year-old. Skysports.com understands West Ham have lodged an offer worth £1.5million but the Greek giants are holding out for £2million. Moon intimated that he knew of West Ham's interest in the January transfer window but a move to England failed to materialise. Lucas Neill's departure has left the Hammers short defensively and Moon is thought to be a key contender to fill the void. With their initial offer having been rejected, the Premier League club must now weigh up their options before returning to Panathinaikos.
