West Ham have agreed a 26 million deal with Hull City for the transfer of Jarrod Bowen.

Crystal Palace were reportedly close to a deal but saw their move hijacked by the hammers as per the Evening Standard.

David Moyes is counting on goals from Jarrod Bowen to rescue the Hammers from relegation as he secures the services of the 23-year-old.

West Ham agreed a deal worth up to 26 million for Bowen and the striker will jet in to London today to undergo his medical ahead of the move.

Crystal Palace thought they already had an agreement with Hull but West Ham hijacked the deal at the last minute.

Bowen has already scored 16 goals in the Championship this season and Moyes is hopeful he can recreate that form in the Premier League as well.

Moyes has been keen to add some firepower to his squad this month and co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold have moved to back the Scot in the pursuit of Bowen.

West Ham have being active in the transfer window following the initial signing of Tomas Soucek on loan. The midfielder could make his debut against Brighton at the London Stadium tomorrow.
