West Ham United are reviving their bid for Spartak Moscow midfielder Radoslav Kovac.

The Sun says Hammers boss Gianfranco Zola is preparing a deal to bring midfielder Kovac back to the club.

The Czech spent four months on loan from Spartak Moscow last season and hit one goal in eight games.

Boss Zola is now looking to sign Kovac, 29, as cover for injury-prone midfielder Scott Parker.
