Javier Hernandez Close To Premier League Return

West Ham are closing in on a deal to sign Mexican striker Javier Hernandez from German club Bayer Leverkusen.

The club are confident of signing the former Manchester United striker, 29, although no fee has been finalised.

In May, Hernandez – widely known by the nickname Chicarito, which means ‘little pea’ – became Mexico’s leading all-time scorer with his 47th international goal.

Hernandez scored 59 goals in 156 appearances for United after arriving at Old Trafford in 2010, before joining Leverkusen for £7.3m in August 2015.

He has netted 39 times in 76 matches for the German club.
