Luca Toni's future at Bayern Munich has been thrown further into doubt after the Italian refused to play for the club's reserve team.

The Italian striker has been strongly linked with a move to West Ham, and the latest developments suggest a switch to the Premier League in January is a strong possibility.

The 32-year-old believes that he is fit enough for first-team action, but coach Louis van Gaal is of the opinion that Toni has not fully recovered from an Achilles problem.

Ahead of the Champions League clash with Juventus, an angry Toni said: "He wants me to play in the reserves again, but I don't think I will do that again."
