West Ham are interested in signing Swansea defender Alfie Mawson, according to Sky sources.

Sky Sports News understands Hammers boss David Moyes is targeting a new centre-back during the January transfer window after losing Jose Fonte to injury in October.

Mawson has 18 months left on his current contract, but would still command a fee of around £25m.
