Downes having West Ham medical ahead of £12m move | Fulham in Diop talks

Swansea midfielder Flynn Downes is having a medical ahead of a £12m move to West Ham, who are in talks with Fulham over selling defender Issa Diop.

Sky Sports News has been told a deal is close to being finalised for Downes, who is having the second part of his medical, with West Ham increasingly confident they can complete the signing.

The Hammers are light in the central midfield area after club captain Mark Noble retired in the summer and the former Ipswich midfielder could fill that combative void.

The 23-year-old made 39 appearances in all competitions last season for the Championship side, who look set to replace Downes with Joe Allen.
