West Ham are on the verge of capturing the signature of Loic Remy, say reports from France.

According to a story in L'Equipe, Nice general manager Patrick Governatori
believes that they close to reaching an agreement with United.

"We received a new offer from West Ham which seems good and suits us," he said. "If
Liverpool want him, we need clear arrangements and commitments.

"West Ham are very keen. And we want to sort out that case before the end of the

Liverpool - who are said to be interested in a player swap deal only - entered the
race to sign Remy last week.

West Ham - who originally wanted to spread payments over the course of four years -
are understood to have offered to pay the entire 13million fee immediately in order
to secure Remy's signature.

''Bloody fed up of us takings risks on unproven foreigners (bar Piquionne, who is average best IMHO). We need to be signing home grown players, British players. There are good youngsters from the Championship surely worth taking a punt on for a fraction of the price. ''

''Hmmm...nine days. It's a lot of money to offer. I agree there has to be a deadline, the only problem I have with him is that he says he would rather join Liverpool and Arsenal. I mean you can't blame him, but do we really need a big-time Charlie at the club?''

''Why has Nice to wait on the 'Pool and why is West Ham waiting? They have made a really good offer and Nice wants us to wait. I think it's time to drop this, you can see the greed; they want more and more.''

''If it's not enough, it's time to say 'thanks but no thanks'.

Remember, the one who can afford to walk away from the deal holds all the power. If they dont want our money let them have somebody elses. If we don't give them a deadline it makes us look desperate.

Are we desperate? Not with thirteen big ones in our back pocket. If it goes beyond the end of the month offer them 8m in staged payments.''
