Various reports are suggesting that Croatian international Ivan Strinic will sign for West Ham at the beginning of next week.
Sky Sports reported a few days ago that West Ham were closing in on the deal for the 27-year-old defender, and it now appears that finalisation of the move is very close to being completed.
Strinic is entering the final year of his contract at Dnipro and the Russian club are open to offers for the full-back rather than risk losing him for nothing next season. Indeed, their sporting director has confirmed that Strinic will either sign for West Ham or sit in the reserves after attempting to force through a move away.
Ukraine account @FFN_Ukraine has this morning tweeted to say that Strinic will officially sign for West Ham tomorrow, although such claims are yet to be backed up by the usual West Ham sources.
It is expected that Strinic, also a left-back, will challenge new signing Aaron Cresswell for a starting position in the West Ham team.
