Jussi Jaaskelainen: Deal agreed with West Ham

The Finnish ace has turned down the chance to remain at the Reebok Stadium following the Trotters' relegation last season.

The keeper has agreed a two-year deal at Upton Park, according to Sky Sports.

The Hammers are expected to confirm the deal shortly, with the 37-year-old officially joining on July 1 when the transfer window opens for the summer.

The move will see Jaaskelainen reunited with his former Bolton boss Sam Allardyce.

West Ham are looking to bolster their goalkeeping options after England keeper Robert Green turned down the chance to extend his stay with the club.
