St Patrick's Athletic midfielder Keith Fahey is being tracked by West Ham United.

Saints take on newly-crowned eircom League of Ireland champions Bohemians at Richmond Park in Dublin on Saturday, and Fahey is set to be watched by Irons' representatives, says the Irish Sun.

Hammers boss Gianfranco Zola was impressed by Fahey during St Patrick's recent two-legged Uefa Cup defeat to Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin.

Fahey, who turns 26 in January, has already had one failed stint in England.

The Dublin-born player began his career as a trainee at Arsenal before joining Aston Villa for £250,000 in 1999.
