West Ham are to make a third bid for Bruges captain Hans Vanaken.

The 30-year-old is desperate to link up with David Moyes who has made it clear he wants the 6ft 5ins midfielder as well as Lucas Paqueta.

Bruges have rejected £11m so far and do not wish to sell but Vanaken wants the chance to play in the Premier League.

The Hammers made an improved £9.2million offer for Club Brugge captain Hans Vanaken on Tuesday.

The offer included an extra £1.6m in add-ons but still isn’t enough for Brugge.

The 29-year-old Belgian international wants to join Moyes’ side during the current transfer window after stating it his ‘last chance’ to make a career move to England. 

‘Clearly there is interest, enough has been written about it,’ said Brugge captain Vanaken.

‘New talks tomorrow and we’ll see where it ends. I think it could be my last chance and I want to do it.’

Vanaken has started all five of Club Brugge’s five Belgian Pro League games so far this season, scoring once in his side’s 3-2 opening day win over Genk.

But the 29-year-old could find that his next start comes in the Premier League with West Ham keen to secure a deal for the attacking midfielder before the transfer window slams shut on September 1.

West Ham boss Moyes has been crying out for further attacking reinforcements and could now get his wish with the player pushing to leave Brugge and make the switch to London.
