According to ExWHUemployee, new West Ham boss David Moyes wants to bring Middlesbrough goalkeeper Darren Randolph to the London Stadium in January.
The Hammers have real problems in the goalkeeping department.
Lukasz Fabianski returned to action on Saturday, but his deputies – Roberto and David Martin are really not good enough for the Premier League.
West Ham need to sign an able back-up for the Pole, and Randolph seems to fit the bill perfectly.
ExWHUemployee claims that Moyes views the 42-capped Republic of Ireland international as the ideal January addition:
I think he wants Randolph to be that https://t.co/k2WMBUYT5o

The 32-year-old left the Hammers for Middlesbrough in the summer of 2017 for around £5 million, according to BBC Sport.
And he has really impressed on Teesside.
Randolph is widely considered to be one of the best stoppers in the Championship. And he would provide strong competition for Fabianski.
The signing of the veteran Irishman would be far from a glamorous one, however.
Randolph was always a fairly popular figure at West Ham though, and he would certainly be able to do a job.
The 32-year-old is much better than both Roberto and Martin. And if the Hammers can snap him up for a reasonable fee in January, it would have to be considered as good business for the east London outfit.
