West Ham United could move for Cardiff City centre-back Sol Bamba on transfer deadline day, according to a report.

West Ham United are reportedly interested in signing Cardiff City centre-back Sol Bamba.

The Hammers are expected to have a busy end to transfer deadline day as head coach David Moyes looks to boost a squad that has been hit by a number of injuries this month.

According to the Daily Star, West Ham are considering a late swoop for experienced defender Bamba, who joined Cardiff on a free transfer in October 2016 following his exit from Leeds United.

The 33-year-old, who is a 44-time Ivory Coast international, has also previously played for Leicester City.

In the latter stages of last year, Cardiff boss Neil Warnock famously claimed that Bamba was a better defender than Liverpool's £75m centre-back Virgil van Dijk.
