West Ham ready to listen to Ljungberg offers

West Ham are desperate to offload veteran midfielder Freddie Ljungberg as the Hammers revert to giving youth a chance.

The Daily Mail understands that Upton Park boss Alan Curbishley has been offering the 30-year-old to other clubs in a bid to ease his bulging wage bill.

The former Arsenal star is believed to be among the top earners at West Ham, raking in about £80,000-a-week - full back Lucas Neill is in the same salary bracket - and recent matches have seen Curbishley put increased faith in his rising stars.

West Ham paid Arsenal £300,000 for Ljungberg in July last year to end the Swede's nine-year spell with the Gunners.
