Prem pair keen on Victor

Deportivo La Coruna midfielder Victor has attracted the interest of Premiership duo Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United.
The 30-year-old is a free agent after his contract with the Spanish outfit expired and had previously been a target for Liverpool.
Rafa Benitez is a known admirer of the winger and had come close to bringing him to England in January.
However, after the deal collapsed earlier in the year, The Reds are unlikely to rekindle their interest, leaving West Ham and Bolton to fight for his services.
The Hammers appear to be in pole position to bring the Spaniard to England, with the player keen to play in Europe next season.
Victor's agent, and father, Jose Sanchez confirmed the interest from the two clubs but revealed a sticking point may be his reluctance to undergo a trial with either side.
"These clubs are interested in the boy and have asked for a week-long trial before making a final decision," Sanchez said.
"This is a problem because Victor is in perfect condition and a trial now would be a strange situation.
"Victor has not yet responded but is hoping for a solution in the next few days.
"The option of The Premiership has always been enormously attractive for the player and especially the option of West Ham as they are in the Uefa Cup."
