The Bulgaria international is currently playing for Levski Sofia in his homeland, but has a clause in his contract which allows him to leave the club on a free transfer.

He was left out of Sunday's game against Botev Plovdiv and reports have claimed that he is now discussing a move to West Ham.

Levski sporting director Georgi Ivanov told Bulgarian National Radio: "We had to let him go because we have an agreement. I allowed him to travel to England because I am contractually required to do so. 

"But he remains a Levski player until he signs with another team."

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce is in the market for a new striker after losing Andy Carroll for around four months due to an ankle injury.

Bojinov previously spent three years at City after joining from Fiorentina in 2007, but his time at the Etihad Stadium was wrecked by knee and Achilles injuries.

The 28-year-old made just 12 appearances for City, with his only goal for the club coming against Tottenham Hotspur in 2009.

He has subsequently played for the likes of Parma, Sporting Lisbon and Vicenza before linking up with Levski earlier this year.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
