West Ham United have managed to lift themselves out of the bottom of the points table after a disastrous start to the season as the new manager David Moyes, is finally getting the team to play some exciting football. They are still only four points away from the drop zone and have a lot of work to do, to end this season on a high.
They have already added a couple of smart players to their squad after the turn of the year but are still not convinced with the options at their disposal. This has seen Moyes scout for some more names and one name they are reportedly close to signing at the end of the season is Ryan Fredericks.
A product of the Tottenham Hotspur academy, Fredericks was not able to impress enough to break into the first team at White Hart Lane and was shipped off to Bristol, after three loan stints, back in 2015. Just months later, he returned back to London, where he managed to establish himself in the first team at Craven Cottage.
He has already made 127 Championship appearances, where he has picked up 13 assists but is out of a contract at the end of the season. He is not expected to sign a new deal and is open to talking to potential suitors and there were a number of clubs interested in his services even in January.
However, a reliable source in an ex-West Ham employee has now revealed that the Hammers are in advanced talks with the 25-year old and are set to land him before the start of the next season. But what will he bring to London Stadium?
