The Romania international's contract at Shakhtar Donetsk is expiring and the left-back is believed to have been a target for the Hammers since the January transfer window.

Agent Florin Manea claims that a deal could be concluded as soon as Monday with Sam Allardyce a big fan of the 31-year-old defender.

"I am with Razvan in England, we are negotiating with the West Ham officials," Marin told Sport in Romania.

"We will probably sign the contract on Monday. The trainer has put him on the top of the wishlist and the owner has approved the move."

West Ham have reportedly fought off interest from Marseille by bettering the deal that the French club could offer the player.

Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
