West Ham interested in Keane and Hutton

Parker Swap?

Hammers boss Grant has seen his new side lose their first two Premier League games and is looking to bring in a number of experienced players before the transfer window shuts.

Harry Redknapp has consistently stated he has no desire to sell Keane, but it is believed Spurs are willing to listen to offers for the Ireland striker, who is behind Jermain Defoe, Peter Crouch and Roman Pavlyuchenko in the first-team reckoning.

West Ham’s current selection of forwards does not include the regular goalscorer they need to avoid a relegation battle, making the prospect of bringing in Keane an attractive one.

Spurs are also prepared to consider bids for Scotland defender Hutton, who has struggled to make an impact at White Hart Lane since arriving from Rangers in January 2008.

The 25-year-old attacking full-back, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Sunderland, would add some steel to West Ham’s fragile defence, but the Hammers are likely to face strong competition for his signature from Birmingham City.

Tottenham will be looking to recoup as much as possible of the £12 million they paid for Keane and £9 million they spent on Hutton, which could put the pair out of West Ham’s reach.

However, with Redknapp determined to sign West Ham’s England midfielder Scott Parker, a swap deal could suit both clubs.
