- Club proposed loan with obligation to buy
- Moyes keen to bring in forward after selling Haller
West Ham have suffered another setback in their hunt for a replacement for Sébastien Haller after having an opening bid rejected for the Montpellier striker Gaëtan Laborde.
They tried to strike a deal by offering a loan with an obligation to buy Laborde in the summer. Montpellier refused and will consider only a sale, with the asking price for 26-year-old likely to be £16m.
