West Ham are eyeing up a potential move to sign Isaiah Jones from Middlesbrough in the summer after his outstanding performance against Tottenham in the FA Cup on Tuesday night.
That’s according to a report from 90Min who claims that Tottenham also want to sign the 22-year-old.

Hammers boss David Moyes will be a busy man in the transfer market at the London Stadium this summer as will Spurs manager Antonio Conte at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
And it seems that both London clubs have their eyes set on the same potential summer transfer target.
Isaiah Jones has been in absolutely sensational form for Middlesbrough so far this season and he put in an unbelievable display against Tottenham in the FA Cup on Tuesday night.
The Lambeth-born ace was a key factor behind Boro’s memorable win at the Riverside. He may not be staying on Teesside for long though…
West Ham want Tottenham slayer Isaiah Jones
90Min reckon that both the Hammers and Spurs are eyeing up summer swoops for the versatile 22-year-old Middlesbrough ace.
Jones is a right winger by trade but has operated mostly as a right wing-back for Boro, especially since Chris Wilder took over at the Riverside in November.
In 31 Championship games for Boro this season, Jones has operated as a right wing-back 18 times.
During his 31 appearances, the 22-year-old has bagged eight assists and averaged 1.9 tackles and 1.3 key passes per game (Who Scored).
Jones possesses blistering pace, exceptional dribbling ability and is incredibly strong. He proved on Tuesday night that he has what it takes to succeed at the very highest level.
It could take around £15 million to prise Jones away from Boro according to the Hartlepool Mail.
That sounds like outstanding business to us. Whether West Ham are able to beat Tottenham to the 22-year-old’s signature though, remains to be seen.
