Skysports.com understands West Ham have launched a new bid for highly-rated West Brom ace Graham Dorrans.
West Ham have made Dorrans one of their top transfer targets and they saw a £4million bid for the Scottish international turned down by West Brom at the back end of April.
Dorrans has established himself as one of the best young players in Britain after playing an instrumental role in West Brom's promotion to the Premier League last season.
The 23-year-old scored 18 goals from midfield and was named the club's player of the season as well as being included in the PFA Championship team of the year as reward for his successful campaign.
A number of other Premier League clubs are thought to be keen on the former Livingston man, but West Ham are determined to bring the skilful playmaker to Upton Park.
New Hammers boss Avram Grant is keen to rebuild the squad at Upton Park after they narrowly avoided relegation last season and the club are thought to have upped their offer to £4.5million for Dorrans.
West Brom are determined to keep hold of Dorrans as they prepare for life back in the top flight, but they could struggle to fend off a lucrative offer for a player they signed for a bargain £100,000 in 2008.
