Jussi set for Hammers as Green leaves
Jussi Jaaskelainen moved a step closer to joining West Ham after it was confirmed Robert Green will be leaving the Hammers.
Green, just like Jaaskelainen is out of contract this summer and has decided to leave on a free transfer, and Sam Allardyce has lined the Finland international up as a replacement. Hammers chairman David Gold confirmed on Twitter:"Robert Green is a free agent he has chosen to move on. Matthew Upson did the same thing. "Nobody wants Rob to leave but nothing is for ever, he must do what is best for him and we must do what is best for us." Jaaskelainen is now expected to sign a one-year contract with the Hammers after telling Wanderers boss Owen Coyle he will not be staying at the Reebok Stadium.
