West Ham is in talks about a loan deal for Red Bull Leipzig defender Matthew Bondswell.

While Masuaku is on his way to recovery, Moyes wants an extra body to give him options.
Moyes was enthusiastic about Manchester United’s Brandon Williams, but his interest in Jesse Lingard means he can’t sign two loans from the same club. United are also reluctant to let Williams out.
Bondswell will be flying over for talks and medical care pending his return to England.
Moyes remains determined to bring in a striker in addition to Lingard.
