WEST HAM are leading contenders to sign England international Harry Maguire, but Chelsea are now bang in contention for his signature.

Maguire was appointed skipper by manager Erik Ten Hag’s predecessor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in January 2020.

But having spent the majority of the 2022-23 campaign on the sidelines as a peripheral figure, Ten Hag has relieved the 30-year-old of his duties and will announce a new captain shortly.

Maguire played in 31 of the club’s 62 matches in all competitions last season, but made just eight Premier League starts.

His contract at Old Trafford runs until June 2025, but it’s believed the player will push for a move elsewhere to guarantee first-team action ahead of the European Championships.

Furthermore, United need to sell to boost their transfer kitty for new additions.

Tottenham were long-time leaders for Maguire’s signature, but having been odds-on for several weeks, they have now drifted out to 6/1.

West Ham have replaced them at the top of the betting market with the BBC claiming that David Moyes would like to bring the centre-back to the London Stadium.

Moyes is keen to make additions to his squad following the sale of skipper Declan Rice, who left for Arsenal for a colossal £105million.

Chelsea were previously available at 33/1, but have shortened dramatically to 15/2 over the last 24 hours.

Reports claim that Blues representatives have already made contact with intermediaries about a possible deal after news that Wesley Fofana will miss the entire season having undergone ACL surgery.

An extended stay at Old Trafford is the most likely scenario at 7/10, while Aston Villa and Newcastle trail at 8/1 and 10/1 respectively.

Following Ten Hag’s decision, Maguire said: “After discussions with the manager today he has informed me he is changing captain.

He outlined his reasons to me and whilst I’m personally extremely disappointed, I will continue to give my all every time I wear the shirt.

“I wanted to say a massive thank you to the Manchester United fans for all their brilliant support whilst I’ve been wearing the armband.

“Since the day I took on the role, three and half years ago, it’s been a huge privilege to lead Manchester United and one of the proudest moments of my career to date.

“I’ve done everything I possibly could to help United be successful – on and off the field. I will always be grateful to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for first giving me the responsibility and I wish whoever now takes it on every success.”
