West Ham are one of a number of clubs being linked with a move for Norweigan international Jonathan Parr.

The distinctly English-sounding Scandinavian is currently being touted around a number of British clubs and West Ham - along with Swansea, Leicester City and Queens Park Rangers - are amongst those said to have expressed an interest in capturing the 22-year-old left back.

Talking to Norweigan TV channel TV2, Parr's agent Jim Solbakken confirmed that he was keen to tie up a deal for his client this week. "I have no comment, but I can confirm that I am in England right now to negotiate a deal," he said.

Parr - who spent a brief spell on trial at Nottingham Forest in December of last year - is considered by many to be the second best full-back in Norway behind John Arne Risse, who signed for Fulham earlier today.

A quick, left-footed player, Parr is also reknowned for his crossing ability. His current contract - with Aalesund of the Norweigan Premier League - is due to expire later this year.
