West Ham will have Belfodil option

It’s reported Inter’s Ishak Belfodil will complete his move to West Ham tomorrow, but it’ll be on loan with an option to buy.

For several days it has been known the Algerian forward is on the verge of joining the Hammers after demanding more playing time ahead of the World Cup.

According to TMW and other sources in Italy, Belfodil will be in London on Thursday for his medical.

However, it is no longer simply a six-month loan spell, but rather a deal giving West Ham the option to buy him outright at the end of the season.

This is why Inter had to get the all-clear with his former club Parma before allowing the transfer to go ahead.

He is also talking through details of a contract for three or four years.
