West Ham United will move to complete a deal for Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Dominic Iorfa in the January transfer window as the Championship club resign themselves to selling their star, according to the Mirror.

Iorfa is one of the brightest talents in the first team at Molineux, having already played 84 senior competitive games for the club by the age of 21.

The England Under-21 defender can play at full-back and centre-back, and offers both promise of huge future talent and versatility to his team.

He has been attracting the attentions of Premier League clubs for some time, but Wolves have been holding firm in their resolve to keep the young star.

However, new Wolves manager Paul Lambert wants to overhaul his squad starting in January, and with the Championship club now resigned to losing Iorfa sooner or later, they are willing to sanction his departure.

The Mirror's report claims that they will be looking for a fee of £5 million up front, plus future add-ons, from any sale.

That is a deal which West Ham would reportedly be open to, with the paper claiming that Slaven Bilic is an admirer and wants to complete a quick deal.

Iorfa hails from Southend and allegedly wants a move to a Premier League club closer to home.

Southampton and Crystal Palace have also been credited with an interest, but the London Stadium is thought to be his preferred destination.

The Hammers are looking for reinforcements in defence, and Iorfa's talent and versatility make him a very attractive proposition.
