West Ham closer to landing Reading's Shorey

Reading fullback Nicky Shorey appears set to join West Ham United in January.

The Sun says January move to West Ham now looks nailed on for the England left-back.

Royals boss Steve Coppell last night revealed: "The situation with him is as it's always been . . . he wants to play at a higher level.

"That's his long-term goal and he fully understands our situation - although, with the window closed, at the moment it is a non issue."
