WEST HAM are set to complete the signing of Paris Saint-Germain defender Thilo Kehrer, according to reports.
David Moyes has been seeking defensive reinforcements since new boy Nayef Aguerd sustained a serious ankle injury during a pre-season friendly against Rangers last month.
The centre-back, who joined the Hammers in a £30million transfer from Rennes, had to undergo surgery for the issue and will now be sidelined until the end of October.
As a result, Moyes was forced to set up with a centre-back partnership of Kurt Zouma and full-back Ben Johnson for West Ham's opening Premier League games against Manchester City and Nottingham Forest.
The Hammers struggled on both occasions and failed to pick up any points, so club chiefs have pulled the trigger on a £13m bid for Kehrer.
And according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, PSG have accepted the offer.
