Hammers interest in ousted Matt Mills

Mill-ing it over: Former skipper looks set
for Foxes' exit
West Ham United are reportedly keen on out-of-favour Leicester City defender Matt Mills, according to Sky Sports.

Mills has been dropped by Nigel Pearson having lost the captain's armband last month and with the Foxes' manager coy about the former Reading man's future at the King Power Stadium in an interview last week, a move does seem to be on the cards.

Leeds United sought the signature of 25-year-old Leicester-born Mills last week, as Pearson confirmed, but with no news on any movement out of the East Midlands since then, the Hammers have picked-up the chase. Sam Allardyce will be keen to bolster his defence for West Ham's promotion push.

Leicester will want to offload high earner Mills if he is indeed to have no further role at the club. He is amongst those paid the highest wages at the King Power Stadium having been bought in for a club record fee last summer.
