Middlesbrough goalkeeper Darren Randolph could return to former club West Ham as the London club attempts to resolve its crisis between the sticks.

West Ham are keen to recruit a new keeper in the January transfer window following some unconvincing performances from Roberto who has conceded 16 goals in seven appearances since arriving in the capital.

And according to The Sun on Sunday, the Hammers could turn to Irish shot stopper Randolph who played for the club between 2015 and 2017 before making the switch to current club Middlesbrough.

Since arriving on Teesside he has made over 100 appearances for Boro and was named in the Championship Team of the Season last campaign.

This season, Randolph and his teammates have struggled for form under boss Jonathan Woodgate and although keeping Randolph would help them in their bid to climb up the table, it is thought that the club would also be willing to sell the Irishman and cash in on him.

Randolph started his career at Charlton Athletic, signing a professional contract at The Valley in 2004.

He spent six years at the Addicks and was loaned out to five clubs during his time there before making a permanent switch to Motherwell. he then linked up with Birmingham City before West Ham came calling in 2015.
