Hammers move appeals to Luyindula

Paris St Germain striker Peguy Luyindula would not rule out a move to West Ham in the January transfer window.
The 31-year-old, who has been used 17 times as a substitute in league action by PSG this season, is enjoying the challenge of helping the capital club push for the Ligue 1 title, but is happy to leave his future in the hands of his agent and the club.
Asked whether he would be tempted by a move to the Hammers, despite their position at the bottom of the Barclays Premier League, he told Le Parisien: "To say otherwise would be wrong. West Ham is London, and I have half my family in London. In football, nothing is impossible."
He added: "If a club offers something that PSG cannot refuse....I will leave it with my agent. I feel good in Paris, the next six months can be wonderful and I think I have a part to play in that. There may be something really good at the end."
PSG sit second in Ligue 1 and Luyindula, whose most prolific season saw him score 16 goals in 37 league games for Lyon in 2003-04, insists he will not rock the boat or agitate for a move.
"People who are interested in signing me should contact the club," he added.
"They should discuss it with PSG. I could shoot my mouth off and create a showdown, but this is not my state of mind. But there are discussions to have."
