Coufal set for West Ham medical

Slavia Prague right-back Vladimir Coufal will undergo a medical in London on Thursday ahead of a move to West Ham.

Slavia president Jaroslav Tvrdik confirmed the news via social media on Wednesday evening, with the fee reported to be around £5m.

The 28-year-old has won two Czech titles since joining Slavia in 2018 and impressed in his country’s 2-1 win over England last year.

Hammers boss David Moyes has previously been linked with Burnley’s James Tarkowski and St Etienne’s Wesley Fofana as he looks to strengthen his defence.

If a deal can be made, Coufal will compete with Ben Johnson and Ryan Fredericks – once the latter returns from a hamstring injury – for the starting right-back berth.
