It's Hall over

Rob Hall seems certain to leave West Ham for Bolton Wanderers - despite the two clubs being unable to agree a fee.

Once considered to be the brightest prospect in West Ham United's Academy, the 19-year-old is on his way out of the Boleyn Ground having failed to agree terms on a new contract.

Hall - whose only start for West Ham's first team came in the 4-1 home defeat by relegated Wigan Athletic in last season's Capital One Cup - has provisionally agreed to join the Championship side, managed by Dougie Freedman, but will be unable to do until the two club's reach agreement over his valuation.

That now appears destined to be decided by a tribunal with Bolton not prepared to meet West Ham's demands; West Ham are thought to value Hall at the 1million mark, although the Trotters are not prepared to pay more than half that figure.

Hall, who has been at West Ham since childhood and has represented England at all youth levels from Under 16 to Under 19 spent two months on loan at the Reebok Stadium last season. His only first team appearance came in a 2-2 draw against Blackpool at the beginning of May.
