Wolverhampton Wanderers confirmed on Wednesday that Roderick Miranda has joined Olympiacos on a season-long loan - and a certain West Ham United star may be a brilliant replacement.

Wolves seem pretty likely to bolster their central defensive options on the back of losing Miranda, and West Ham's Winston Reid would represent an exceptional signing.

The Hammers, according to Sky Sports, have agreed a deal to sign Paraguay international Fabian Balbuena and have already brought in Issa Diop for a club-record £22 million fee.

Manuel Pellegrini has overhauled West Ham's defence and it seems more likely that Reid will make way to accommodate the new additions, rather than Declan Rice or Angelo Ogbonna.

Reid, who earns £70,000 per week [Silly Season], has been an excellent Premier League player since joining the East Londoners in 2010 and he would certainly improve Wolves.

The newly-promoted Wanderers need an imposing, experienced figure to slot in beside Willy Boly at the heart of Nuno Espirito Santo's defence, so why doesn't the Portuguese manager go for Reid, who has 166 top-flight games under his belt?
