West Ham target Hasan Ali Kaldirim is reportedly keen to stay at Fenerbahce and reject the chance to move to the London Stadium. The Hammers have been linked with the 29-year-old in recent weeks and were hoping to conclude a deal in the near future.
However, a report by Turkish outlet DHA is suggesting that the Turkey international left-back is having second thoughts and now wants to remain with his present club and extend his deal, which has one year left to run.

It is claimed the former Kayserispor ace has a 5m euros buyout clause in his current contract which the East End outfit were prepared to match but he is said to have told friends that it is his intention to stay put and fight for more silverware with The Yellow Canaries.
The West Germany-born star has been with the Istanbul giants since 2012 and was part of the side that secured the 2013-13 Sup Lig while he also won the Turkish Super Cup in 2014. Kaldirim has been capped 30 times by Turkey and scored his only international goal against Moldova in a Euro 2020 qualifier in March this year.
