West Ham are on the look-out for a big January signing after Dimitri Payet’s refusal to play for the Hammers and are considering a swoop for Swansea playmaker, Gylfi Sigurdsson, according to reports from the Express.

The former Tottenham man, who has been rated at around £20m by Slaven Bilic, is also reportedly a target for Premier League rivals Southampton.

However, the Welsh side have made their stance over the Iceland international very clear, telling all potential suitors that they can name their price, but he is not leaving.

The 27-year-old, who broke into English football at Reading, where he scored 22 goals in 51 appearances before moving to Bundesliga side Hoffenheim.

Despite Bilic’s refusal to sell wantaway star Payet, having supposedly rejected a £20m bid from Marseille, he will undoubtedly have to be considering alternatives to the Frenchman.

As well as Swansea’s Icelandic hero, the east London side have also been linked with a move for Scotland international Robert Snodgrass.
