West Ham United want to bring former Tottenham boss Martin Jol back to London.

The People says the Ajax coach is believed to be open to the idea of a return to the Premier League. And West Ham, close to the home Jol still owns in Essex, could prove a viable option, if co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan can stabilise the club by securing more investment.

Current boss Gianfranco Zola is certain to leave Upton Park at the end of the season, despite an upturn in results in recent weeks.
