West Ham table offer for Hull striker Jelavic

West Ham United have made an offer for Hull City striker Nikica Jelavic, reports ESPN.


The Hammers are currently in the market for a striker due to injury problems with their forward options Mauro Zarate, Enner Valencia and Andy Carroll.

The Croatian was left out of the Tigers' 2-0 win over Preston North End on Saturday and Slaven Bilic is now set to make his move.

After the game, Hull boss Steve Bruce said: "We had a bid late last night. Actually, two clubs have shown their hand and with that going on I didn't think it was right [to play him].

"At the end of the day, if he goes I've got to go with the players that are going to be here."
