West Ham are closing in on a deal for Blackburn goalkeeper Paul Robinson.
The 33-year-old former England international has fallen out of favour at Ewood Park in recent months.
Paul Robinson factfile
- Born: 15/10/1979 in Beverley
- Height: 6'3"
- Weight: 14.2st
- Honours: 2008 League Cup
- Clubs: Tottenham Hotspur, Leeds Utd, Blackburn Rovers.

The clubs are close to reaching an agreement on a deal that could see West Ham goalkeeper Stephen Henderson move in part-exchange.
Robinson has yet to agree personal terms with West Ham, but his relationship with manager Sam Allardyce is expected to ensure a deal is struck.
The former Leeds goalkeeper was first choice at Blackburn under Allardyce during his spell as manager.
Robinson has privately expressed a preference to remain in the north of England because of family reasons, but the offer from West Ham may prove too good to turn down.
