Spartak Moscow midfielder Radoslav Kovac would prefer a move to England with either Sunderland or West Ham. Ideally it would be the Hammers where the Czech international had a loan spell last season.

"In principle, I wouldn't object to going to Hannover, but I would prefer to stay in England, where there is also interest from another Premier League club," the 29-year-old told Russian newspaper Sport Express.

He added, "I hope that West Ham will still be able to come to an agreement with Spartak."
