West Ham's Reece Burke in action

A selection of the latest stories involving West Ham United...

West Ham United's striker search could be about to reach a satisfying conclusion - and a doubly satisfying one at that.

According to Jack Sullivan, son of Hammers co-chairman David, deals for two new strikers are on the cards.

The youngster claims a fee has been agreed with AC Milan for the transfer of Carlos Bacca, whose decision will be made in the next 48 hours (it's actually about 24 now), adding that only a work permit hearing, due to be held next week, is preventing Deportivo Maldonado's Jonathan Calleri becoming an Irons player.

And Bacca does appear to be on the move (somewhere), as the Colombian's latest Instagram post shows. The caption (loosely) reads: "Leaving. New goals, new dreams, new hopes, new season."

At the other end, a £10 million bid has been made for versatile Borussia Dortmund defender Matthias Ginter, Bild reports.

The 22-year-old can play at both right- or centre-back - positions vacated by Joey O'Brien and James Tomkins this summer - as well as in central midfield.

According to South London Today, Charlton Athletic want to sign young West Ham defender Reece Burke on loan.

The centre-back impressed during a spell at Bradford City last season and is said to have attracted interest from Newcastle United.

A move to The Valley seems unlikely for Burke, who'll only be allowed to the Championship or higher, Slaven Bilic says.

Meanwhile, the London Evening Standard claims West Ham are among the many Premier League clubs to have shown an interest in Spurs-bound winger Georges-Kevin N'Koudou.

The Irons, along with Liverpool and Manchester United, are said to have watched the Marseille man last season.

And finally, ex-Upton Park loanee Alex Song has found a new club it seems.

ESPN reports the Cameroonian will move to Russian side Rubin Kazan on a free transfer from Barcelona, potentially freeing up Yann M'Vila to sign permanently with Sunderland.
