Nigel Quashie is set to quit West Ham United, with Sheffield United or Cardiff City his likely destination.

The Scotland midfielder spent the last year on loan at Birmingham and Wolves but neither of the promoted sides want to offer the 30-year-old a permanent move.

Former Nottingham Forest and Southampton player Quashie has been the subject of four seven-figure transfer deals but the cash-strapped Hammers will let him go cheaply.
