According to The Guardian, West Ham United are set to sign Darren Randolph from Middlesbrough in the January transfer window.
It has been reported that Premier League club West Ham will pay Championship outfit Middlesbrough a transfer fee of £4 million for the services of the 32-year-old Republic of Ireland international goalkeeper.
The report has claimed that the Hammers have agreed a deal with Boro, with Randolph keen on going back to the London Stadium.
The goalkeeper was on the books of West Ham from 2015 until 2017 before leaving for Middlesbrough for a transfer fee reported by The Guardian to be worth £5 million.
Good signing for West Ham United?
Lukasz Fabianski is the first-choice goalkeeper at West Ham at the moment, and now that the former Arsenal player has recovered his fitness, he will stay between the posts.
However, the Hammers need a very good back-up option, and Randolph will be just that.
West Ham are fighting for survival in the Premier League this season.
