Derby County right back John Brayford is wanted by West Ham United.

The Mirror says Hammers chief Sam Allardyce is tracking the former Crewe kid who has been one of the best full backs in the Championship since he stepped up to that level.

Brayford, 24, could be sold by the Rams in the January market and Allardyce's spies have been camped out in recent weeks as they look to strengthen the position.
