Stoke and West Ham in Sidwell tussle

Stoke City and West Ham United are battling to sign Fulham midfielder Steve Sidwell, according to the Mail Online.

The former England U21 international was one of the stand-out performers for the recently relegated London club during the 2013/14 campaign, appearing in all of their league games, scoring seven times – more than any of his teammates.

He moved to Craven Cottage from Aston Villa in half way through the 2011/12 campaign, having also played for Chelsea and Reading while he began his career at Arsenal, though he left before making a single league appearance.

His contract with Fulham is due to expire this summer, and Stoke – managed by his former boss Mark Hughes, and West Ham are leading the race to secure his services.

In total, the 31 year old made 112 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring seventeen times, two of which came in the 2011/12 Europa League campaign.
