Sky Sports News understands Adriano has turned down a loan move to West Ham.

The Hammers confirmed earlier on Tuesday that they were in talks with Internazionale over a possible loan deal for the Brazilian.

Adriano's future at Inter looks uncertain with the club willing to loan him out so that he can regain his form and fitness.

The Brazilian international is well down the pecking order at Inter and does not currently figure in Roberto Mancini's plans.

West Ham are hoping to lure Adriano to Upton Park, but is believed that the former Parma hit-man has rejected their overtures.

Despite Adriano's initial rejection West Ham are expected to make a renewed bid to take the player to east London before the closure of the transfer window on Friday.

Hammers boss Alan Curbishley, speaking before West Ham's win over Bristol Rovers, was in the dark over the possible move for Adriano.

"I don't know too much about it to be fair," said Curbishley. "I don't know if it is talk to stir things up, if you like, we will have to see.

"I just think it is something that has cropped up. Is it speculation or is there something in it? I don't know."
