David Moyes remains hopeful of persuading Burnley defender James Tarkowski to join West Ham.
An offer worth up to £27million has been lodged and talks are ongoing.

Burnley will still demand £50million for defender Tarkowski during the transfer window.
The 27-year-old was courted by Leicester last summer and is set to be in demand again after a solid season for the Clarets, who finished 10th in the Premier League after performing impressively post-lockdown.
