Skysports.com understands West Ham have agreed a deal to sign Portsmouth defender Tal Ben-Haim.

Portsmouth administrator Andrew Andronikou revealed earlier this week West Ham were interested in signing the Israel international, with cash-strapped Pompey keen to offload Ben-Haim.

Ben Haim was left behind as Portsmouth travelled to America for a pre-season tour so that he could sort his future out.

West Ham boss Avram Grant is a big admirer of Ben-Haim and is keen to be reunited with the central defender, but it was feared his personal demands could scupper the deal.

However, a compromise is believed to have been struck between both parties, paving the way for Ben-Haim to make the switch to Upton Park.
