According to reports on Twitter, West Ham United are reportedly considering signing out-of-contract Norwich City goalkeeper John Ruddy in a deal that would see Darren Randolph leave the club.
John Ruddy could be signed on a free-transfer as back-up. If it happens, Darren Randolph will leave the club.

Irons manager Slaven Bilic is said to be looking to sign a new stopper this summer with both Randolph and Adrian making mistakes during the current campaign, and he could choose to bring Ruddy to the London Stadium after the Canaries announced that they would release the 30-year-old at the end of his contract this summer.
The England international has starred in the Premier League before and the east London outfit may see him as a potential number one, or good enough to be back-up next term.
West Ham supporters were quick to have their say on the rumour via social media, with many saying it would be pointless for the club to replace Randolph with Ruddy as they would rather have the former.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
