Milan Baros' agent has denied media reports that the former Liverpool and Aston Villa striker will join West Ham United in the transfer window.

The 26-year-old - who was top scorer at the 2004 European Championships - has struggled to make an impact at Lyon since joining last season, mostly used as a late substitute when fit, and has been linked with a move since the summer.

His agent Pavel Paska told Sport: "I can definitely rule out that Lyon would be offering Milan to anyone."

Wigan, Middlesbrough and Birmingham have all been linked with the striker who joined Lyon in a part-exchange deal with Aston Villa for John Carew in January 2007 and has since only scored six goals in 23 matches.
