West Ham set to hijack Wigan’s move for Spaniard
West Ham United are now in pole position to sign Real Mallorca defender Ivan Ramis, according to the Daily Mirror.
Wigan boss Roberto Martinez was hopeful of landing the 27-year-old after tabling a £4m bid but Sam Allardyce seems to have won the race for the defender.
Ramis said: “I have played my last match for Mallorca because there is a new and very interesting offer for me.
“Wigan is not the best proposition for me.”
Ramis is a product of Mallorca’s youth system having made his debut for the first team in 2003/04 against Albacete before being loaned out to Real Valladolid in the 2005/06 season.
He was part of a successful campaign for Mallorca last season where they were finished comfortably mid-table. The Spaniard has also been linked with Aston Villa and Sunderland but prefers a move to London.
Ramis is hoping to fly to London on Monday for a medical. If the move were to go through,he would become the club’s third major signing of the close season after Mohamed Diame and Modibo Maiga.
