Hammers track Spurs defender

Last Updated: Tue, 18 Mar 2014 14:33

West Ham have been linked with a move for Tottenham defender Kyle Naughton, who is expected to leave White Hart Lane this summer.

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is believed to be looking at bringing in a new right-back during the off-season, with Guy Demel the wrong side of 30 and Joey O'Brien failing to nail down a starting berth on that side of the defence.

Allardyce is thought to have put Naughton on his list of candidates as the 25-year-old is set to become available at the end of the season after five difficult years at Spurs.

The English defender joined from Sheffield United in 2009 along with Kyle Walker. However, unlike Walker, Naughton's career has stagnated in north London and he is ready to move on.

Norwich are thought to be keen on bringing him back to Carrow Road after his loan spell with the club during the 2011/12 season.

Any move by the Canaries will depend on which division they are in, and West Ham might be able to steal a march on them by offering him the chance to remain in London.
