Former Liverpool defender Glen Johnson is closing in on a move to West Ham United after being released by the Reds at the end of last season, according to reports in the Daily Express.

The full-back has already turned down Turkish club Besiktas – according to the Daily Star – and it seems he’s set his heart on staying in the Premier League.
Johnson started his professional career with the Hammers, playing 15 times in the league before moving to Chelsea. From there he went to Portsmouth before joining Liverpool in 2009.
He played 200 times for us in all competitions, helping us win the League Cup in 2012 and finish second in the Premier League two years later, but he struggled for much of the 2014-15 campaign and was not offered a new deal.
Nathaniel Clyne has already arrived at Liverpool to replace Johnson, with the former Southampton man no doubt looking to enjoy an equally extended run in the team – although hopefully with a little more success along the way!
