Paul Robinson linked with West Ham switch

Blackburn Rovers stopper could be reunited with Sam Allardyce

Paul Robinson is set to join West Ham, with reserve stopper Stephen Henderson going the other way, according to reports.

The Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper is apparently keen to quit Ewood Park having lost his position as the number one choice.

Meanwhile, Henderson is happy to go the other way in a bid to play more first team football, having played understudy to Jussi Jaaskelainen since joining on a permanent deal in the summer.

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce worked with Robinson, who picked up 41 caps during his career, when he was manager at Blackburn.
