Sky Sports understand that West Ham United have made an increased bid for Blackburn defender Martin Olsson.

The Hammers made an initial bid for Olsson earlier this month, believed to be around £2million.

Rovers rejected this claiming they wanted three-times this amount - but Olsson himself has asked the club to let him join his former boss Sam Allardyce.

Now West Ham have returned with a new bid for the left-back, and they are waiting to see if Blackburn will accept.

Allardyce is keen to get the deal for Olsson tied up as soon as possible.
