West Ham’s defensive restructure shows no signs of coming to an end, as another name has emerged in the transfer market.

The Hammers have already signed Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop and goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski this summer but new boss Manuel Pellegrini is eyeing additional reinforcements to his back-line.

ESPN name West Ham as one of a number of Premier League sides interested in the services of Borussia Monchengladbach defender Jannik Vestergaard.

The 25-year-old defender, currently on international duty with Denmark at the World Cup, is already stated to be subject of bids from Southampton and Everton but West Ham could join the hunt.

Along with the Hammers, Watford are also said to be keen on the 16-cap international, who is yet to feature at the World Cup, and could enter the market with a bid of their own.

Vestergaard is valued at £12.6m by TransferMarkt, making him an affordable option for West Ham.
