Midfielder tempted by Hammers move

St Patricks Athletic midfielder Keith Fahey says he would be tempted by a move to the Premier League.

The Irish midfielder was watched by United scouts recently and it was claimed that a deal to bring the 26-year-old to East London had been done - something later furiously denied by Fahey's current boss, Johnny McDonnell who claimed that "we have had no bids for Keith."

But Fahey himself says that he would be keen on a return to the Premier League, having spent time at both Arsenal and Aston Villa in his younger days.

"I would like to move on," he said. "I don't think I can do any more at Pats. I would like to move on if someone comes across.

"There is speculation but I know as much as you. There are a couple of things going on. Hopefully something will happen towards the transfer window."

Fahey, who began his career as a trainee with Arsenal has also been linked with Sunderland, Reading and Derby.

''Not a bad player, done well against Hertha Berlin this year. Can't see him being much more than a squad player though.''
