West Ham want £18M for crock Ashton

West Ham United are ready to sell injured striker Dean Ashton.

The Mirror says the 24-year-old striker is out injured but is known to be a target for several Premier League clubs.

The Hammers are desperate to raise funds following the cash crisis being suffered by their Icelandic owners and an impending legal battle with Sheffield United over the Carlos Tevez affair.

The striker only signed a new five-year contract in June but his poor injury record - which saw him sprain an ankle in boss Gianfranco Zola's first training session at the club - has tested the patience of the club's hierarchy.

Spurs had a £15million offer for Ashton turned down in the summer, with the Hammers wanting £18m.
