Aston Villa defender Richards set for West Ham

Micah Richards is heading for West Ham United.

The Aston Villa defender will join the Hammers on a season-long loan from Aston Villa, according to the Daily Mirror.

Richards, 28, will be given the chance to swiftly return to the Premier League following Villa's relegation to the Championship.

West Ham had been eyeing Arsenal's Mathieu Debuchy and Wolves full-back Dominic Iorfa but Slaven Bilic has now reportedly settled on former Manchester City man Richards.
