Roma’s Marco Borriello has agreed to join West Ham on loan for the rest of the season [Di Marzio]

Having lost out on a loan deal for Lacina Traore to sharks Everton, West Ham have dusted themselves down and appear to have made an equally strong temporary acquisition, with Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claiming Marco Borriello has agreed to join the Hammers on loan for the rest of the season.
Borriello has found his game time limited this season due to the form of…Gervinho – yes, Gervinho, – and is said to be enthusiastic to join up with West Ham on a temporary basis, and is expected in East London on Saturday to complete his medical.
Borriello fits the strong burly type liked by West Ham manager Big Sam, and would prove an able substitute for the convalescent Andy Carroll.
