West Ham goalkeeper linked with switch to fellow Premier League side Bournemouth

Latest news on the transfer front involving West Ham involves interest in one of their players

West Ham goalkeeper Darren Randolph is reportedly on Bournemouth’s radar. The experienced stopper is currently behind Łukasz Fabiański and Alphonse Areola in the pecking order.

As per a report by Derbyshire Live, the Hammers have recalled Joseph Anang from his loan spell at Derby County with the Cherries ‘believed’ to be showing an ‘interest’ in signing Randolph before the end of the window.

West Ham brought the veteran back to the London Stadium in 2020 to provide competition and cover to their goalkeeping department. He has since played just 10 games and hasn’t featured for the past season-and-a-half.

He enjoyed more game time during his first spell with the club from 2015 to 2017 when he made 42 appearances in all competitions. The 35-year-old has also played for the likes of Charlton Athletic, Motherwell, Birmingham City and Middlesbrough in the past.

A switch to Bournemouth would boost his chances of getting first-team football and with Anang now back from his stint at Pride Park, the Hammers are well stocked up with options between the sticks.

In other West Ham news, Pierre Ekwah is set to join Sunderland, as reported by Foot Mercato. The 21-year-old midfielder signed from Chelsea back in 2021.
