West Ham target to decide on future next week

Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher is expected to decide where his future lies next week, according to the Daily Mirror.

The 30-year-old has been the subject of interest from both West Brom and West Ham in recent weeks, according to the same report, with Red Devils boss Louis Van Gaal agreeing to allow the Scotland international to leave Old Trafford on loan this month.

The Mirror claim West Ham are hopeful of bringing Fletcher in on loan with a view of making the deal permanent in the summer, while West Brom boss believes the midfielder would be an important addition to his relegation-threatened Baggis outfit.

Meanwhile, the Mirror are reporting West Ham are lining up Lazio right-back Luis Pedro Cavanda as potential alternative to Carl Jenkinson, should they fail to make the Arsenal defender’s loan spell permanent in the summer.

The 24-year-old Belgium international, who was originally born in Angola, has played 47 times for Lazio.
