West Ham could move for frustrated £12m England winger

West Ham could be about to offer Andros Townsend an escape route from Tottenham Hotspur, report the Metro.

The England international has slipped down the pecking order at White Hart Lane and was recently spotted arguing with a fitness coach during a warm down after the win against Aston Villa.

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic is reportedly keen on the 24-year old, who has been linked with Newcastle, Sunderland and Crystal Palace previously.

Reports suggest the Upton Park outfit could offer as much as £12m for the player when the transfer window once again opens for business in January.

With Euro 2016 on the horizon, the former QPR loan star is understood to be keen on a switch in order to force his way back into Roy Hodgson’s England side.

West Ham playmaker Dimitri Payet was recently side-lined for at least 12 weeks, opening up a gap in the Hammers’ frontline.

Bilic is said to be keen on strengthening his attacking department in the January sales.
