Peter Reid is a shock candidate for Gianfranco Zola's job at West Ham United.

The News of the World says the former Manchester City and Sunderland boss has come onto the radar of West Ham owners David Gold and David Sullivan as they assess who should replace Gianfranco Zola in the summer.

It is an open secret that Zola and assistant Steve Clarke will be on their way at the end of the season, even if the Hammers secure Premier League survival.

Reid achieved plenty during his spells at Manchester City and then Sunderland. Recently he has been working as Tony Pulis's deputy at Stoke.
