West Ham in advanced talks for £12m Downes deal

West Ham United are in advanced talks with Swansea City over the signing of midfielder Flynn Downes.

Sky Sports News has been told a deal thought to be worth £12m is close to being finalised with West Ham increasingly confident they can complete the signing.

The Hammers are light in the central midfield area after club captain Mark Noble retired in the summer and the former Ipswich midfielder could fill that combative void.
