Nocerino is understood to be having a medical after agreeing a loan deal and Borriello is also heading to London for talks.

Nocerino, who has 15 caps for Italy and has also played for Juventus and Palermo, has played 16 times for the Rossoneri this season but the 28-year-old may be surplus to the requirements of new coach Clarence Seedorf.

Roma remain reluctant to see Borriello, 31, leave on a permanent basis but could sanction a loan switch for the forward who needs regular games to force his way into the Italy squad for the World Cup in Brazil.

Genoa were also reported to be interested in the striker, who has started just six times for the Giallorossi so far this season.

Hammers manager Sam Allardyce is desperate to bolster his squad after a recent run of poor form which has seen them slip out of the FA and League Cups and into the third relegation spot in the Premier League.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
