West Ham strike terms for Toulouse defender Issa Diop

West Ham have edged ahead of Everton in the race for Toulouse defender Issa Diop.

L'Equipe says Diop, 21, is likely to become Manuel Pellegrini's first signing as Irons manager.

And he would seem to be an ideal replacement for West Ham's outgoing Welshman James Collins.

A deal worth £22m has been agreed between the two clubs.
