Baros on way to West Ham

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.
