WEST HAM are lining up a bid for Watford striker Troy Deeney if they fail to bag Daniel Sturridge.

Hammers boss David Moyes' hand has been forced with injuries to Andy Carroll, Marko Arnuatovic and Diafra Sakho.

Sturridge is now on West Ham's radar and is available on loan but with an obligation to shell out £25million for him in the summer.

If the deal for the wantaway Liverpool striker falls through, SunSport understands Moyes could turn his attention to fellow Brummie Deeney as the Scot looks to beef up his attack this month.
