West Ham United have held talks with Olympique Marseille about a deal for Djibril Cisse.

The Independent says West Ham have led the chase but would prefer to only take the French international on loan initially while Bolton, Blackburn Rovers and Tottenham Hotspur have also made inquiries. Liverpool have first option on the 26-year-old, who they sold for £6m, but are not interested in re-signing him.
