Hammers join Caicedo chase

Ecuador international Felipe Caicedo claims he could be leaving Manchester City this summer and signing for West Ham United. The 20-year-old has scored eight goals in 35 appearances for Mark Hughes' side but looks set to be deemed surplus to requirements at Eastlands. "On Sunday I received a call from the people at Sporting Lisbon," he told El Telegrafo. "There is still nothing concrete, but they told me that they have already spoken to the officials at City. "There are several offers - not just Sporting. There's a number of clubs in Portugal, Spain and also England. The only English club I can name is West Ham. "However, I've been told that I'm going to stay here, plus I have a contract with more than three years remaining at City."
