Ex-Real Madrid midfeilder Guti could be set for a move to Upton park, with the 35-year-old currently in talks with West Ham manager Sam Allardyce.

Guti reportedly told "Yes West Ham are interested but nothing is decided yet. We are negotiating."

In an attempt to avoid an immediate return to the Championship, Allardyce is trying to bring as much experience as possible to the club. Having already signed Jussi Jasskelainen earlier this week, Guti would be a valuable addition.

The Spaniard won La Liga five times and the Champions league three times with Real Madrid.

One of Guti's representatives, Barry O'Connor, told The Sun: "West Ham will make a final decision before the next season starts. I cannot discuss what terms could be offered."

Guti would move on a free transfer since his contract at Besiktas has expired.
