Just the Job?

West Ham are being linked with a move for Middlesborough striker Joseph Desire-Job.

Alan Pardew, who has failed to land any of his main targets during the close season could turn to the Boro striker, who is likely to be surplus to requirements at the Riverside this season.

The 27-year-old Cameroon international joined Boro from French side Lens in 2000, but has made just 62 league starts in his four-and-a-half years in the North East.

Job spent a short spell on loan at Metz in 2002 before hitting the best form of his Boro career shortly after returning.

Any move by the Hammers is likely to involve a loan deal as it is unlikely that Pardew views the 5'10" forward as a permanent answer to his shortfall up front.
