West Ham linked with Borja Valero move

West Ham executives are believed to have their interest in Spanish midfielder Borja Valero known this week, as the former WBA midfielder looks set to quit Villarreal for a return to the Premier League.

Valero spent three mixed years with West Brom, as the player went on loan to Mallorca and then Villarreal. The midfielder would later sign a permanent deal with the Yellow Submarines, but was unable to help keep them in the Spanish top flight this year.

A fee of around £2.7 million would be enough to persuade Villarreal to sell the player, as the club admitted last week that they would have to sell some of their best players this summer.
