Hammers in keeper hunt

Filed: Wednesday, 10th June 2009
By: Staff Writer

West Ham are interested in signing another goalkeeper - despite having only recently confirmed the arrival of Peter Kurucz.

The Hammers, who released both Jimmy Walker and Jan Lastuvka at the end of last season are moving quickly to fill their goalkeeping quota ahead of the 2009/10 season, and are understood to be keeping tabs on a young stopper currently plying his trade in the Football League.

With 19-year-old Marek Stech possibly going out on loan next season new arrival Kurucz, 21, is set to join Alex Dyer's reserve squad - with the mooted new arrival set to replace Lastuvka as Robert Green's number two in Gianfranco Zola's first team squad.

Green is set to make his second start for England tonight when Fabio Capello's side take on Andorra in their Group Six World Cup qualifier - a game that can be seen live in the UK on ITV from 7:45pm. He is joined in the squad by fellow Hammers Matthew Upson and Carlton Cole.

''I can't see him being a number two, sure he's good enough to be first choice even if only in the Championship.''

''How about Marcus Hahnemann who is a free agent? He was a pretty decent keeper when Reading was in the Prem and would make a suitable back-up. ''
