West Ham have agreed a club-record deal in the region of £35m for Lazio midfielder Felipe Anderson, according to Sky sources.

Sky Sports News reported earlier on Thursday there were some other terms still to be finalised - and we understand those have now been agreed.

Personal terms between Anderson and West Ham are not expected to be a problem.

The 25-year-old is expected to arrive in London on Thursday, ahead of undergoing a medical with West Ham, after being granted permission to travel by Lazio.
