West Ham's mooted move for Rob Green could be scuppered by wage demands

West Ham Upton Park

The latest regarding West Ham United's alleged pursuit of a former Hammer.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, West Ham United’s proposed move for Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Robert Green could be scuppered by the player’s wage demands.

West Ham have impressed in the summer market so far, bringing in the likes of Dimitri Payet, Angelo Ogbonna and Martin Samuelsen, but it seems they are still in the market for a new stopper despite signing Darren Randolph for free at the end of the last campaign.

Randolph will deputise for the suspended Adrian as West Ham look to get back to winning ways this weekend, but the Mail claims the Hammers are continuing their pursuit of 35-year-old Green.

The former England international has played 107 matches for QPR, keeping 31 clean sheets in that time, and despite starting the season as number one in the Championship he is being linked with a switch to Upton Park.

The latest report claims the former West Ham player could make a return with Randolph potentially heading the other way, just weeks after first signing.

However, Green’s £50,000-a-week wages could prove a sticking point despite suggestions a £1.5million move could be on the cards.
