Bournemouth are reportedly in talks to sign West Ham United goalkeeper Darren Randolph in the January transfer window.

That’s according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth who claims that Bournemouth want to sign the 35-year-old on a permanent deal.

Randolph rejoined the Hammers from Middlesbrough in January 2020 for around £4 million (BBC).

Since then, he has only made five Premier League starts for West Ham though.

Since Alphonse Areola’s arrival at West Ham, he has fallen well down the goalkeeping pecking order at the club. And now it seems as though he could well be on his out of West Ham…

Darren Randolph could leave West Ham for Bournemouth

It appears as though the 50-capped Republic of Ireland international’s days as a Hammer could be numbered.

Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth claims that Premier League club Bournemouth are currently in talks to sign the West Ham stopper:

West Ham are in a position now where we are very well covered in the goalkeeping department.

David Moyes has Lukasz Fabianski, Alphonse Areola and talented young trio Nathan Trott, Joseph Anang and Krisztián Hegyi at his disposal.

So moving him on to Bournemouth for a small fee should be a non-brainer, especially considering the fact that he is out of contract in the summer.

I would not be surprised one little bit to see this one go through.
