According to a report from 90 Min, West Ham are interested in re-signing Darren Randolph from Middlesbrough in January.

The Hammers sold the 32-year-old to the Teesside outfit back in the summer of 2017 for around £5 million.

The 39-capped Republic of Ireland international stopper was always a consistent performer for West Ham, and considering that they have Roberto and David Martin as cover for Lukasz Fabianski, allowing Randolph to leave now looks like massive mistake.

He has flourished at Boro.

 

The 32-year-old has kept 39 clean sheets in 112 appearances for Middlesbrough.

And the 6ft 2in ace would be a great backup for Fabianski. West Ham fans would love him back too.

The sooner the Hammers get rid of Roberto, the better. Randolph would bring much need competition to the number one spot, and he would undoubtedly strengthen the West Ham squad.

Quite how much the Hammers would have to pay for the Irishman, however, remains to be seen.

He is under contract with Middlesbrough until the summer of 2021, so the Teesside outfit will certainly not want to let him go on the cheap.
