West Ham seek loan deal for Arsenal defender Squillaci

West Ham United are chasing Arsenal defender Sebastien Squillaci.

The Sun says Hammers boss Sam Allardyce has made a move to sign Squillaci on loan.

But the plan has stalled because the Gunners are desperate to offload the French defender on a permanent deal.

West Ham need cover while centre-half Winston Reid recovers from a dislocated shoulder.

But FIFA rules mean a player can only be registered with two teams in a season and lending Squillaci would rule out flogging him in January - unless the Hammers bought him.
