West Ham's Zamora and Pantsil in Fulham talks

West Ham have given Fulham permission to speak to striker Bobby Zamora and defender John Pantsil after the pair were deemed surplus to requirements at Upton Park.

Zamora, who scored only once in 14 matches last season, and Pantsil, with 17 games in the previous campaign, are both looking for more regular first-team football and that persuaded the Hammers to let them leave.

'West Ham can confirm the club have received an approach from Fulham for the transfer of Bobby Zamora and John Pantsil,' said a statement on the club's website.

'The club are looking forward to an exciting new season with a fully-fit squad, including the return of Kieron Dyer and Craig Bellamy along with Dean Ashton secured on a long-term contract.

'Added to the form of Carlton Cole and the emergence of Freddie Sears, the decision has been made to let Fulham speak to the two players.'

West Ham United CEO Scott Duxbury added: 'We recognise Bobby Zamora and John Pantsil have had limited first-team opportunities last season.

'They want to play regular first-team football and we have given permission for them to speak to Fulham with a view to concluding a move.'
