DEVELOPING STORY: West Ham match Burnley's bid for Robert Snodgrass

West Ham United and Middlesbrough have joined Burnley in agreeing fees for Hull City midfielder Robert Snodgrass with the Hammers emerging as favourites for the Scotland worldwide, sources close to the player have told ESPN FC. The club now say it is up to the player to decide.

Hull have turned down offers from West Ham and Middlesbrough for Snodgrass who has this season left on contract plus the option of a further year.

The Scottish worldwide has been in sparkling form this season having scored nine goals in all competitions and those stats have meant that a number of teams have made him a transfer target this month, despite the fact he becomes a free agent in the summer. However Hull had no choice in the matter. Let's see how this one goes... But with the threat of relegation looming large over Hull, a chance to move to a club competing for a place in the top-half of the table could prove to be appealing for Snodgrass.

Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka also expressed concerns when confirming his interest in bringing in Snodgrass, suggesting the club's position in the Premier League could deter Hull from selling to a rival - with the two sides just four points apart.

The Scotland worldwide is Hull's top scorer this season with 9 goals in all competitions which included a goal during the 1-1 draw against Burnley at Turf Moor in September.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has confirmed that the club have agreed a fee with Hull City for midfielder Robert Snodgrass.
