Richardson set for West Ham move?

Richardson set for West Ham move?

Utility man Kieran Richardson looks set to become the latest Sunderland player to be moved on this summer as Martin O'Neill trims his squad.

The 27 year-old who can play at left-back or left-midfield is set to join Premier League newcomers West Ham United.

Richardson is believed to be close to sealing a £2.5m switch to the east London side with various sources reporting the move.

The former Manchester United and West Brom man has been unable to pin down a regular position in the side since O'Neill's appointment but has still featured on a regular basis despite not specializing in once specific position.

Since arriving from Old Trafford in a £5.5m deal in 2007, Richardson has gone on to make over 130 firs-team appearances as a Black Cat.

Another man close to sealing his SoL exit is defender Marcos Angeleri.

On July 6, the forgotten-man of Wearside tweeted 'resolviendo el futuro',(not hard to translate), and is expected to sign for Argentinian outfit Estudiantes in the near future.
