Hammers linked with free agent Ruben Baraja
West Ham are being linked with Valencia midfielder Ruben Baraja who could be available on a free transfer this summer.
The 34-year-old has yet to be offered a new deal by the Spanish outfit and reports in Spain suggest he will be allowed to leave on a free transfer with the Hammers, Wigan and Bolton said to be leading the race for his signature.
It looks like being a turbulent summer at Upton Park with plenty of comings and goings, while the future of boss Gianfranco Zola also remains up in the air.
Baraja is still being linked although the player has not ruled out staying in Spain.
“It does not depend on me and I have not brought it up,” he revealed. “I will not be thinking about whether I stay or not yet. It is a club decision and the only fact at the moment is that my contract runs out on 30th June.
“All I want to focus on now is training well and to be able to play in the games that we have left this season.”
