Nikica Jelavic claims that he is willing to leave Rangers this month, with West Ham being a likely destination.

Rangers frontman Nikica Jelavic has hinted that a move to West Ham United is a possibility, despite reports linking the player with a switch to Liverpool.

The Croatia international has been the subject of speculation this month, with the striker's agent claiming that the 26-year-old is "likely" to sign for Liverpool.

Despite reported interest from the Merseyside club, it appears that Jelavic is willing to move to Upton Park.

"West Ham are a great club and not a Second Division outfit," Jelavic told the Daily Record. "They are a famous English Premier League club who happened to be relegated last season and will return to the top division next season.

"It would be nice to play there, but I am playing at a big club so it wouldn't bother me if I had to stay and anyway I don't even call my agent about a transfer these days.

"I know Rangers are in a tough financial situation and if they need to sell me I will go, but I would also be happy to stay."

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce confirmed last week that the Championship side were in talks with the Scottish outfit over a transfer.
