West Ham are one of several clubs being linked with a move for Cameroon international defender Stephane Mbia this morning.

Mbia, who currently plays for Olympique Marseille is said to be just one of a number of players made available for transfer by the financially-stricken French club, from whom West Ham signed Alou Diarra only last week.

The 6'3" centre half made his name in France with Rennes before siging for Marseille in 2009 in a 10million move. According to L'Equipe, West Ham have made enquiries into his availability.

Queens Park Rangers and Sunderland are also said to be keeping an eye of the 26-year-old.

In other news, forogtten striker Freddy Piquionne is said to be the subject of interest from Championship club Brighton & Hove Albion.

The former French international was heavily linked with a move to Leeds United last week although nothing has materialised on that front as of yet.
