With the loan spell of Joe Hart not going to plan and the Hammers deciding not to take up an option to make the deal permanent, West Ham are in need of another goalkeeper to rival Adrian for the green jersey.
Today, according to the social network sites, the Hammers are looking towards acquiring a goalkeeper who usually, also, guards his net behind a claret and blue defence.
West Ham spoke to Burnley this past week about goalkeepers Nick Pope and Tom Heaton. The club asked them what they would be willing to accept for either player.

infers that West Ham have asked Burnley which of their two excellent goalkeepers they would be prepared to lose and at what price.
In our opinion both Tom Heaton and Nick Pope are decent keepers.
Heaton was on the verge of an England place until he picked up a nasty injury.
Given the chance to take over from Heaton, Pope not only filled the role admirably but also did enough to win a place in the 23-man England World Cup squad.
Even after Heaton was available again, after recovering from injury, he couldn’t dislodge Pope from the Burnley first-team which makes me think that if Burnley are prepared to sell West Ham either of them it would be Heaton, if the price is right.
