Zaidu Set To Join West Ham For 17M Euros On Deadline Day

West Ham United are reportedly going to make a transfer deadline swoop for Super Eagles defender Zaidu Sanusi.

According to the report, the Hammers are ready to take the left-back on loan from FC Porto for the rest of the season and also agree a purchase option of 17 Million Euros.

Zaidu would love to move to the Premier League club and dump Portuguese giants Porto.

The player had a difficult time in the last few months during which he has come under the attack of fans following some indifferent showings.

Zaidu’s predicament has been further compounded with the arrival of Brazilian left-back Wendell from the German Bundesliga.

Gernot Rohr, the Super Eagles coach, has already said Zaidu will quit Porto in this transfer window so as to enjoy regular first-team football.
