The former England defender has emerged as a target for boss Slaven Bilic as he looks for cover at right-back, as he only has the relatively untested youngster Sam Byram at his disposal.

West Ham want the former Manchester City man on loan but Villa are thought to be keen on a permanent transfer.

Meanwhile, Italy international defender Angelo Ogbonna has been linked with a deadline day move to Chelsea.

But West Ham want the former Juventus star to stay and a switch to Stamford Bridge for the centre-back looks unlikely at this late stage, with Bilic having little time to sign a replacement.
