West Ham United in talks with former Norwich City goalkeeper John Ruddy

West Ham United are in talks with former Norwich City goalkeeper John Ruddy, according to the Daily Mail.

The Canaries No. 1 was told by his current employers that he will not be offered a new contract at Carrow Road and is set to be released at the end of the season.

The news has alerted Slaven Bilic, who is looking for a new shot-stopper who can provide competition for Darren Randolph and Adrian.

Ruddy, who has also played at international level for England, was a regular for Norwich last season, having made 29 appearances across all competitions this season, keeping ten clean sheets in the process.

Now 30, he has been at Carrow Road for seven years after joining from Everton in 2010, but has decided it is time for a new challenge in his career, with the London Stadium seen as a potential option.

West Ham have been linked with plenty of goalkeepers in recent months, after Adrian and Randolph have both had first-team spells in which they failed to particularly impress Bilic and keep hold of the number one spot in the side.

Despite his Premier League experience, many will wonder if Ruddy is the goalkeeper the Hammers need to make the London Stadium club more consistent in stopping goals going in.
