Armero set for West Ham

Pablo Armero is moving a step closer to completing his loan to West Ham, as the Napoli full-back awaits only a visa.

The Colombian has been increasingly reported as set to join the Londoners late in this transfer window, on a simple loan deal until the end of the season, before then returning to Napoli in the summer.

Terms of agreement on the move are said to have been reached and transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio is running the line that the 27-year-old has already had a medical with the Hammers.

It is now believed that the player is only awaiting a visa before seeing the loan move made official.
