Milan defender Oddo claims West Ham interest

AC Milan right-back Massimo Oddo claims West Ham have expressed an interest in taking him to Upton Park.

Oddo spent last season on loan at Bayern Munich after struggling to hold down a regular place under former coach Carlo Ancelotti.

The inquiry from West Ham, and their Italian manager Gianfranco Zola, has come from a third party rather than the club itself but Oddo is willing to consider any permanent move.

The 33-year-old said: ''The latest interest I received is from West Ham which has yet to be formalised as I was contacted by an agent and not by a club executive.

''I have already had an experience on loan, which is not ideal for a player. Hence, I don't want to go away and then come back to the same conditions as I was in the previous year.

''I have to look not only at my interests but that of my family. To go away for a year with young children and face a new culture doesn't seem the ideal situation.''

Reports in Italy have linked Oddo with a move to the Hammers in a swap deal which would see French midfielder Julien Faubert switch to the San Siro.

Former Italy international Oddo is under contract with the Rossoneri until June 2011.
