West Ham are close to completing the signing of Ipswich Town defender Aaron Cresswell.
The 24 year old is undergoing a medical at Upton Park, and the fee is believed to be around £3m.
The left back received rave reviews for his performances in the Championship last season, and the Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has conceded that they will struggle to hold onto their prize asset if the right offer comes in.
”There is interest, I can’t deny that, as he is a good player, but if there are any bids, I won’t be telling you.” Said McCarthy.
“He was getting the plaudits last season for being the best left-back in the Championship and at some stage, if someone comes in and the deal is right, then it becomes an irresistible force.
“He is under contract, but that becomes a negative as the player sees there has been a bid for him that everyone else seems to think is fair.
“He may feel he’s done his time and want to move to better himself. If that’s the case, it’s hard to stop.
“If he does go I will shake his hand, thank him for his efforts and crack on and bring someone else in, that’s how it works. It would have to be the right bid though.”
