West Ham United are in the market for a new centre-half.

With James Tomkins nursing a hamstring injury and Wales international James Collins facing a one-match suspension following his red card on Saturday, Sam Allardyce is effectively down to one recognised central defender - Winston Reid - for next weekend's derby at Crystal Palace.
