West Ham United are reportedly ready to open talks with former Manchester City striker Valeri Bojinov.

Levski Sofia sporting director Georgi Ivanov has revealed that striker Valeri Bojinov has travelled to England to open talks with an English side.

West Ham United have been linked with a move for the former Manchester City forward, and Ivanov has confirmed that he is powerless to prevent the 28-year-old from returning to the Premier League.

Ivanov told Bulgarian National Radio: "We had to let him go because we have an agreement. I allowed him to travel to England because I am contractually required to do so, but he remains a Levski player until he signs with another team."

Bojinov scored just once in 12 appearances during an injury-plagued spell at the Etihad Stadium.
