West Ham have granted Fulham permission to speak with striker Bobby Zamora and defender John Pantsil.

Zamora was restricted to 14 games last season, scoring one goal, while Pantsil has started just seven Premier League games since joining the club in 2006.

"We recognise they had limited first-team opportunities last season," said West Ham chief executive Scott Duxbury.

"They want regular football and we have given them permission to speak to Fulham with a view to a move."

A statement on the club's website added: "The club are looking forward to an exciting new season with a fully-fit squad, including the return of Kieron Dyer and Craig Bellamy along with Dean Ashton secured on a long-term contract.

"Added to the form of Carlton Cole and the emergence of Freddie Sears, the decision has been made to let Fulham speak to the two players."

Zamora, who joined the Hammers from Spurs in 2003, has played more than 100 games for the club.

Ghana international Pantsil has struggled to establish himself at Upton Park since joining in 2006, with the majority of his 24 games coming off the bench.
