Nikica Jelavic arrives for West Ham medical

first_imgNikica Jelavic is set to seal a return to the Premier League with West Ham before Tuesday’s transfer deadline, with the Hull striker arriving at Upton Park for a medical on Monday, according to reports.The Croatia international has been strongly linked with an exit from the KC Stadium following the Tigers’ relegation from the Premier League.West Ham, meanwhile, are still hunting for options to boost their limited strike force.Jelavic was left out of the squad that beat Preston 2-0 on Saturday, and manager Steve Bruce admitted following the home clash that his exit is likely.“I had a conversation with Jelavic, which was only right,” said the Hull boss. “How could he play when his head was elsewhere?“Now let’s see if the two clubs get to the valuation. He has a buy-out clause but they have got nowhere near that. Come Tuesday, I would still expect him to leave.”And it now appears West Ham have beaten an unnamed oversees club – thought to be Turkish side Trabzonspor – to the former Everton frontman, and could land him for around £4million.
