Fulham defender Ryan Fredericks is set to join West Ham despite winning promotion to the Premier League with Fulham.

Fredericks will be out of contract next month and is understood to be close to agreeing terms with the Hammers as a free agent.

The 25-year-old right-back could become Manuel Pellegrini's first signing as the new West Ham manager looks to bring in a number of transfer targets quickly.

Pellegrini has focussed on defence and midfield, and the Premier League club have already tabled a £13million bid for Barcelona centre-back Marlon Santos.

Fulham are keen to keep Fredericks and have offered him improved terms. There has also been interest from Crystal Palace and Newcastle.

However, West Ham have been watching the former Tottenham academy product since November and are confident of signing him even though he hinted at staying at Craven Cottage after Fulham beat Aston Villa in the Championship Payoff Final at Wembley last weekend.
