West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is seeking to trim his squad.

The Hammers will have to reduce their wage bill if they want to add to their squad since they have reached their maximum salary cap under the new Financial Fair Play regulations, says the London Evening Standard.

Two players who could be available for transfer as the club attempt to reduce their wage bill are strikers Modibo Maiga and Ricardo Vaz Te.

Maiga, who is due to start on Saturday against Cardiff, is wanted by French club St Etienne while Championship club Nottingham Forest are rumoured to be interested in Vaz Te.
