Skysports.com understands West Ham are preparing to swoop for Everton centre-back Joseph Yobo.

The Nigerian international has been heavily linked with a Goodison Park exit this summer after falling out of favour with Toffees manager David Moyes.

And the long-serving stopper could be on his way to Upton Park, with the Hammers set to table an offer for his services as Tuesday's transfer deadline draws nearer.

Reports suggest Hammers boss Avram Grant wants the 29-year-old on a season-long loan deal, while Everton are keen to offload him on a permanent basis.

Yobo, who has also recently been rumoured for a Celtic move, arrived on Merseyside for £3.5million in 2003 from French club Marseille.
