Reports emerging this afternoon are suggesting that Hammers keeper David James could be on the verge of signing for Premiership outfit Manchester City.

Talksport radio have claimed that England keeper James could be set to sign for Kevin Keegan's side later today, after reports suggested that he was spotted in Manchester this afternoon.

As of yet there has been no word from either club to confirm or deny the rumours, although it is well documented that City are in the market for a new goalkeeper.

Kevin Keegan was reported to be on the verge of signing Icelandic goalkeeper Arni Gautur Arason on a short term loan as cover for the injured David Seaman earlier today.

Speaking to Sky this afternoon on the possibility of signing Arason, Keegan revealed:

"When you are trying to bring a goalkeeper in you end up with a lot of balls in the air.

”You eventually come down to a list of targets and in the perfect world you look at who would be your number one and you go for him.

”Sometimes you can afford him, or you can't afford him or he is not available. Sometimes things can go wrong in the negotiations so you then go for the number two.

”That is where we are at the moment."

We'll bring you more on this story as and when it happens.
