West Ham United are moving for Chelsea midfielder Jack Cork.

The Daily Mail says West Ham are looking to pip Southampton, Burnley and Blackpool to Chelsea's Cork.

West Ham have stepped in and Cork is keen to move across London and join Sam Allardyce's new-look squad.

Allardyce was disappointed to miss out on former Bolton defender Ricardo Gardner but England U21 international Cork who can play in midfield or defence is a positive acquisition.
