Friday's transfer update

The Mail are linking West Ham with an audacious double swoop for Manchester United pair Ashley Young and Wilfried Zaha.

According to writer Simon Jones, Sam Allardyce is mulling over offering both a season-long loan spell at the Boleyn. The future of both players is considered uncertain following the departure of former manager David Moyes.

* Stephen Henderson is a transfer target for Championship side Brighton & Hove Albion, reports the local Argus. Only last week it looked as if Ipswich were in pole position to land the 26-year-old goalkeeper but the Seagulls are now considering a move following the departure of former number one Tomasz Kuszczak, who was released on a free transfer recently.

* West Ham are once again considering a move for Arsenal full back Carl Jenkinson, according to various sources. The 22-year-old is likely to be surplus to requirements at the Emirates next season due to the arrival of Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle this week and West Ham will try to land the England under 21 either on loan or for a nominal fee.

* Former Hammer Herita Ilunga is poised to seal a move to French side US Créteil-Lusitanos. Les Béliers currently play in Ligue 2 of the French pyramid; Ilunga, now 32, will sign a two-year deal with the club after completing a medical today [Friday].

* Back to the Mail and Mr Jones reports that West Ham have offered to take Boca Juniors left-back Emanuel Insua on loan for the season. The 23-year-old defender was previously reported to have been the subject of a £5million bid by West Ham (Daily Mirror, 27th June) but is now apparently only considered worth a short-term contract.

* Algerian international midfielder Saphir Taïder is reported to have been the subject of an undisclosed bid by West Ham. Taider, 22, who currently plies his trade in Serie A with Inter has three years of his current contract remaining but is considered excess to requirements at San Siro following the recent capture of of French midfielder Yann M'villa on loan from Rubin Kazan.

* There's no new 'news' on the situation with Ivan Strinic, who just 24 hours ago was being cited as Sam Allardyce's potential sixth-signing of pre-season. The 26-year-old left back is entering the final year of his contract at Ukrainian Premier League club Dnipro and a number of sources have claimed West Ham are poised to sign the defender for a cut-price fee.
