Nigel Quashie is on the verge of a move to Glenn Roeder's Norwich City.
The midfielder - who is fit again following a six month absence through injury - is thought to be one of two players Roeder, who recently succeeded Peter Grant at Carrow Road, is looking to bring in on loan.
Quashie signed for the Hammers in January of this year but is now surplus to requirements following the summer arrivals of Scott Parker, Kieron Dyer and Freddie Ljungberg.
Norwich are currently bottom of the Football League Championship. Roeder, who took the managerial reigns last month, has so far seen his team take just one point from his three games in charge.
Quashie - who cost United £1.5m when he signed from Championship side West Brom - has made just eight first team appearances for the club.

''I have no problem with Quashie coming to Carrow Road as long as it's with view to stay, because he has nothing to prove like a younger player who will try to impress his parent club - but on the other hand he is low on the list so perhaps this is Roeder's thinking ... ''
