Pinto jets in for West Ham talks

Chilean striker Sebastian Pinto is set to jet into London for talks with West Ham.

The Mirror says the Hammers hope to clinch a shock deal with Brazilian club Santos for the player nicknamed The Tank in his homeland. He has been invited in for a brief trial with a view to a full-time switch to Upton Park.

Pinto has just joined Santos but fell out with the coach and is available on a season-long loan. He is keen to come to England and has accepted the West Ham invitation despite rival offers.
