Romania defender Razvan Rat is set to join West Ham on a free transfer and become Sam Allardyce's first summer signing.
The left-back has been with Shakhtar Donetsk for the past ten years but his current contract runs out this summer and Allardyce is set to lure him to east London with the promise of £35,000 a week.
Allardyce is looking to add to his squad over the summer and the arrival of Rat is expected to be just the start for Allardyce who is also expected to put pen to paper on a new contract himself in the near future.
