Borriello accepts West Ham - report

Marco Borriello has reportedly accepted a move to West Ham and is set to sign from Roma on an initial loan until the summer.

The Italian striker was seen as the subject of an agreement between the Hammers and the Giallorossi, for an initial temporary switch out until the end of the summer, with a purchase option inserted.

Reports this morning suggested that the 31-year-old was set to undergo a medical with the Premier League outfit and negotiate personal terms.

The Gazzetta dello Sport and Sky Sport Italia are now both running the line that Borriello has accepted the move and that it now only awaits official confirmation in the coming hours.

West Ham are similarly close to securing Antonio Nocerino from Milan on a loan until the end of the season.
