EVERTON are considering allowing Joseph Yobo to join West Ham United on loan.
The Hammers have contacted their Goodison counterparts about the possibility of taking centre-back Yobo on a temporary deal before the transfer window closes at 6pm today.
And the London club have not given up their interest in Yobo’s Nigerian counterpart Yakubu, although they would have to improve their previous best bid of £6million for the striker.
Yobo, though, has become West Ham’s priority as manager Avram Grant looks to plug a defence that has leaked nine goals in three Premier League games to leave the Hammers bottom of the table.
The defender, who is 30 next week, has not been involved for Everton since returning from the World Cup and has made just three starts this calendar year.
EDIT: Fenerbache have made a last minute bid to steal him
