West Ham want to bring former goalkeeper Darren Randolph back to the club, according to reports.

The Hammers have reportedly opened talks with Randolph over a move back to West Ham, 90min reports. This was backed up by trusted club insider EXWHUEmployee on Twitter.

EXWHUEmployee said that three goalkeepers were under consideration: Randolph, Jack Butland and Asmir Begovic. But Randolph is West Ham’s top choice.

West Ham want to sign a new goalkeeper to provide cover and competition for Lukasz Fabianski. Roberto joined in the summer but he has been one of the worst signings in the club’s history.

David Martin has performed well since taking over from Roberto but he was always a third-choice option. West Ham want Randolph back to push Fabianski for starting spots.

The Republic of Ireland international spent two years at West Ham, making 42 appearances. He joined from Birmingham City and was competing with Adrian before leaving to join Middlesbrough.

Randolph has been in excellent form for Middlesbrough over the past two-and-a-half years but he could be on his way back to West Ham. Here are some Hammers fans, who are undecided on whether to re-sign the 32-year-old.
