Brentford have turned down a £10m bid from West Ham for striker Scott Hogan, according to Sky sources.

Hogan has 18 months left on his current contract at Brentford and is willing to leave in January in order to secure Premier League football. 

The 24-year-old is valued at around £15m by the Sky Bet Championship club and Sky sources revealed on Monday that Bundesliga side RB Leipzig were also interested in signing him
