West Ham closing in on Olsson

News coming out today is that West Ham  are hoping to complete the signing of West Brom’s Swedish International defender Jonas Olsson after Euro 2012.

Allardyce has been keen to strengthen at the back with a more experienced partner for James Tompkins after West Ham gained promotion to The Premiership.

Tottenham were accredited with an interest in the Swede but since Harry Redknapp has been canned it remains to be seen if they are still a viable option for him. Other teams linked with him are Fullham,  Aston Villa, Everton and Turkish side Galatasaray.

West Ham now look to have stole a march on their rivals with the 29-year-old set to sign after the Euro’s.

Still I will wait until I see him in a West Ham shirt as we all know transfers are never straight forwards. He looks a good defender so I hope it comes off as he could be a great foil for JT.
