Emmanuel Pogatetz: Wolfsburg defender to have West Ham medical

Pogatetz previously spent five years in England with Middlesbrough before moving to the Bundesliga to join Hannover in 2010.

He left Hannover for Wolfsburg on a three-year contract last summer, but is now poised for a return to the Premier League.

The Austrian is understood to have arrived in England on Sunday night and will have a medical on Monday before finalising his switch to Upton Park.

The 30-year-old's anticipated arrival at West Ham will be a major boost for manager Sam Allardyce, who has been desperate to strengthen his defensive options throughout January.

Allardyce has also been linked with a move for Aston Villa's Stephen Warnock, with left-back a particular area that the Hammers boss has been keen to improve.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
