Fletcher was said to be keen on the move to Upton Park and was ready to sign a three-and-a-half year contract on Friday evening.

It remains to be seen whether the two parties can agree a deal but Everton and Leicester City are also interested.

Mark Noble will also be monitoring the situation as he may be required to leave in order to facilitate the deal.
