Hammers boss David Moyes, Hoops manager Neil Lennon and Baggies chief Slaven Bilic will all be on the look out for an established centre-half this summer.

And the Daily Mail claims that Seagulls defender Shane Duffy is the centre of a three-way tussle for his signature between West Ham, Celtic and West Brom.

If fact, the Mail claims that the 28-year-old has already spoken to Neil Lennon about a potential move to Glasgow.

And it now remains to be seen whether he ends up at the London Stadium, Parkhead or the Hawthorns.



The 33-capped Republic of Ireland international made 19 Premier League appearances for the Seagulls this season, scoring one goal in the process (Who Scored).

In those outings, he averaged 0.9 tackles, 1.1 interceptions and 3.7 clearances per game. Duffy also won 3.7 aerial duals on average per game in those appearances (Who Scored).

The 28-year-old is a big, strong and commanding centre-back.

The Daily Mail reckon that he could be available for around £10 million this summer. Perhaps West Ham, Celtic or West Brom will be able to pick him up for a bit less than that with a good bit of bartering.

And Duffy really would be a very solid addition for the Hammers, the Bhoys or the Baggies.
