Go on Olsson

Filed: Monday, 18th June 2012

Swedish international Jonas Olsson in being linked with a move to West Ham - although there are conflicting reports elsewhere.

Sky Sports report this morning that West Ham will tie up a 4million deal for the West Brom centre half upon his return from the European Championships. The Swedes have nothing left to play for but pride having been knocked out of the tournament by England last week.

However reports in Sweden suggest that the 29-year-old, who is in the final year of his contract at the Hawthorns, is on his way to Tottenham - as did the Daily Mirror last week.

Born in 1983, the defener has played in England since moving to West Brom in 2008 having made an 800,000 switch from Dutch outfit NEC Nijmegen.

He made his debut against West Ham on 13th September in what was Gianfranco Zola's first game since being announced as the successor to Alan Curbishley; West Ham going down 3-2 on the day.
