BREAKING: Robert Snodgrass Completes Medical Ahead Of Move Away From Hull
Robert Snodgrass has completed his medical at West Ham ahead of his £10 million move from fellow Premier League side Hull City.
The January transfer window is just a few days away from closing with managers across the country, and beyond, looking to tie up deals ahead of next Tuesday's deadline.
And one player who is set to become a part of the January shuffle is Snodgrass.
The Scottish international has been subject to intense transfer speculation this month with a host of sides tabling offers to clinch his services including a £10 million bid from Burnley.

But it appears 'The Hammers' have fended off competition from Middlesbrough and the aforementioned Burnley to land the in-demand midfielder.
Slaven Bilic has made no secret about his intention of snapping up Snodgrass following a measly £3 million bid earlier in the window.
The 29-year-old missed Hull's EFL semi-final victory over Manchester United last night but his transfer away from the club will be a huge blow for Marco Silva who seeks to keep them in the flop flight.
Meanwhile, the future of Dimitri Payet remains up in the air with a move to Marseille in the balance though the signing of Snodgrass may finally pave the way for the Frenchman's exit.
