West Ham are attempting to sign Tottenham's experienced former French international William Gallas, according to reports.

A tabloid newspaper reports today that United are hoping to take the former Chelsea and Arsenal central defender, now 34, on a free transfer - adding that Spurs would be willing to allow him to leave in order to free up a space in their squad for the forthcoming 2012/13 season.

Other players linked with West Ham by the papers in the past 24 hours include Clarence Seedorf, the 36-year-old former Dutch international plus Sochaux striker Modibo Maiga, whom today's Mail insist West Ham have bid 5million for.

Meanwhile L'Equipe (via footmercato.net) suggest that West Ham are in 'advanced talks' with Rennes captain Kader Mangane over a potential permanent transfer. Mangane is said to have stated a desire to play in England previously and is entering the final year of his current contract with the Ligue 1 outfit.

In temrs of the British players linked with a move West Ham in recent days - players such as Crystal Palace youngster Nathaniel Clyne, Birmingham's (even younger youngster) Nathan Redmond, Norwich's Grant Holt or Sunderland's Kieron Richardson - there is nothing new to report.
