West Ham target Bothroyd could be off to Premier League side Everton
Former Cardiff forward is set for move to the top flight
West Ham target Jay Bothroyd is set for a move to the Premier League with Everton his most likely destination.
Bothroyd, who made his international debut for England in the 2-1 friendly defeat to France last November, left Championship side Cardiff after his contract expired and it was thought that the Hammers were interested in acquiring his services.
There has however been Premier League interest in Bothroyd and Everton manager David Moyes watched the striker on numerous occasions last season.
It is thought he has made his move for the former Wolves forward and the prospect of playing in the top flight is likely to be too tempting.
