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

The London Evening Standard says West Ham are trying to sign a centre‑half to solve a crisis in defence.

The club have problems just one game into the season, following the last-minute 1-0 defeat to Tottenham.

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.
