West Ham set to sign Bridge from Man City

It has been reported by Manchester Evening News that Wayne Bridge looks set to join West Ham on loan until the end of the season.

Bridge, who has endured a frustrating campaign at The Blues this season with only one start all season, has previously expressed his desire to leave the club. The former Chelsea left-back has fallen out of favour this season and is now behind Alexandar Kolarov, Pablo Zabaleta and Jerome Boateng in the pecking order.

Blues boss Mancini said today: “Bridge I think today is in London for a medical.”

Hammers boss Avram Grant is thought to be desperate for a left-back, having lost his only specialist left-back Herita llunga to a long term injury. The Metro have reported that for the duration of the loan spell The Hammers will have to pay all of Bridge’s £90,000 per week wages. West Ham were reluctant to make a permanent move for a player with such high wages, with there being uncertainty surrounding their Premier League future.
