West Ham have been in contact with the representatives of Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne, a source has exclusively told Read Liverpool.

The former England international is set to become a free agent at the end of the month, with the Reds not even considering offering him a short-term extension to see out the remainder of the current campaign.

Clyne is currently training alone, away from the rest of the squad at Melwood, at the club’s academy facility in Kirkby as his representatives look to find him his next club.

The 29-year-old hasn’t played for the Reds this year after he was injured during the pre-season and it looks like his career at Anfield has now come to an end, five years after he joined Liverpool from Southampton.

We understand that West Ham have made an approach for the right-back but haven’t made him an official contract offer at this time.

Clyne has been linked with moves to his former club Crystal Palace and to Bournemouth, where he played on loan last year, but at this time, we can only confirm that West Ham have contacted his representatives and are unsure if either of those clubs have also been in touch,
