Skysports.com understands West Ham are poised to sign experienced striker Eidur Gudjohnsen.

The Iceland international, who spent the second half of last season on loan with Fulham, is a free agent after his one-year deal with Stoke expired.

The former Bolton, Chelsea and Barcelona player struggled to make any impact at the Britannia Stadium and failed to find the net during 10 appearances with the Cottagers.

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is keen to link up with Gudjohnsen again having worked with the forward during their time together at the Reebok Stadium.

The 32-year-old is due to undergo a medical at Upton Park on Thursday and could then put pen to paper on a one-year deal.

Allardyce is eager to bolster his striking options ahead of the new Championship season, particularly with Carlton Cole expected to depart for pastures new.

Gudjohnsen came close to joining the East London club in January last year, but instead elected to spend a spell on loan with Tottenham from Monaco.
