Agent reveals Hammers interest

Representatives of Rennes defender Rod Fanni have claimed that West Ham have been in contact.

Dominique Six, the 27-year-old French international full back's agent told the Daily Star that Roger Cross had contacted him recently ahead of a possible move.

"It's true that we have spoken to Roger," he said. "But we have had no offers for Rod and West Ham would need to speak to Rennes if they want to do that.

"We believe England would be a good option for Rod but it depends on Rennes. There's also interest from Bayern Munich and Spanish clubs."

Fanni began his career in the lower French leagues with FC Martigues, before landing a move to Lens in 2002. Having failed to secure a first team spot with Les Sang et Or he spent time on loan with second division Chateauroux before securing a move to Nice in 2005.

After two impressive seasons at Nice, Fanni was snapped up by current club Stade Rennais in 2007 since when he had gone on to win two caps for France.
