West Ham United are preparing for a major summer clearout.

The Mirror says West Ham are set to clear the decks, with a string of players - including Joe Cole, Jussi Jaaskelainen and Matt Taylor - approaching the end of their contracts.

Italy internationals Marco Borriello and Antonio Nocerino will return to parent clubs Roma and AC Milan when their loans expire at the end of the season.

Fringe players such as Ricardo Vaz Te, Modibo Maiga (currently on loan at QPR) and Alou Diarra will also be moved on.
