West Ham want Stankovic

Despite pledging his future to the club at the end of last season, Dejan Stankovic is the latest Inter man linked with an exit this summer.

The Nerazzurri are undergoing a period of transition this summer as they look to freshen up the playing staff as well as reduce a still sizeable wage bill.

Brazilian defender Lucio rescinded his contract on Friday, whilst goalkeeper Julio Cesar and forward Diego Forlan have also been linked with departures.

Stankovic is the latest who is said to be heading for the door, as West Ham reportedly consider a move for the 33-year-old.

Sky Sport Italia reporter Gianluca Di Marzio is suggesting that the newly-returned Premier League outfit, who were paired with Clarence Seedorf last week, are interested in the Serbian international.

Inter are believed to be open to handing the midfielder over to the London side, but a stumbling block may come in the €2.5m salary that Stankovic is currently on.

West Ham have also been linked to young forward Luc Castaignos, who is another assured of leaving San Siro this summer.
