West Ham move to trump Wigan for Sekou Baradji

West Ham United are planning to trump Wigan Athletic for free agent Sekou Baradji.

The 26-year-old midfielder has been on trial with the Latics for three weeks and was part of their squad for the recent tour of Austria.

Manager Roberto Martinez is believed to have been impressed with Baradji but has yet to make the Paris-born player a formal offer.

That has alerted Grant, who tried to sign Baradji last season when he was at Portsmouth.

Baradji has been signed by West Ham once before, in 2005, but did not make an appearance for the Londoners as he immediately left for Reading on loan and was then released by the Hammers when the loan deal came to an unsuccessful end.
