West Ham reportedly close in on a move for Bolton goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen.

West Ham United are reportedly closing in on the signature of Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen.

The 37-year-old former Finland international will be a free agent when his contract at the Reebok Stadium expires next month.

The shotstopper is thought to have stalled over new terms with the Championship side.

West Ham, who gained promotion to the Premier League last season, are now close to luring Jaaskelainen to Upton Park, according to talkSPORT.

The Hammers are looking for a new keeper following the news that Robert Green would not be renewing his contract with the club.
