Poland international Sebastian Boenisch is wanted by West Ham United.

The People says the 25-year-old left-back is a free agent after quitting Werder Bremen and has already had talks with Hammers boss Sam Allardyce at the Premier League club's pre-season camp in Germany.

The Hammers opened talks with the player's agent last week ahead of a capture that fits with Allardyce's current tight-budget policy.
