West Ham are set for a major restructure this summer after a number of disappointing transfer windows, following a controversial period.
Former Head of Recruitment Tony Henry was dismissed earlier this year and the Hammers are eyeing a new figure to lead them in the market.
Hodge, formerly a respected scout, has played a key-part in Burnley’s rise up the Premier League standings alongside manager Sean Dyche, helping the Clarets remarkably secure Europa League football next season.
West Ham will struggle to bring Hodge to London due to Burnley’s rise into Europe next season but they could lure him with a more prominent role in transfers, with the Hammers board looking to reduce their own influence in this area.
The future of Dyche himself, who has been linked with a number of roles after his impressive performances, could also play a part in the future of Hodge.
