French Ligue 1 outfit Saint-Etienne are set to acquire the services of West Ham forward Modibo Maiga for a transfer fee of £1.5m when the transfer window re-opens in January.

Maiga failed to make an impact with the Hammers ever since his £4.7m switch from Sochaux back in July 2012.

The return of club's record signing Andy Carroll by the end of November could seal the player's fate with the East London club in the New Year.
