WEST HAM have yet to make a formal bid for St Patrick's midfielder Keith Fahey despite reports linking the Hammers with a January swoop for the League of Ireland star, according to the player's club.

Fahey has come to the attention of West Ham manager Gianfranco Zola following his impressive performances against Hertha Berlin in the UEFA Cup and has been lined up for a move to Upton Park in the new year.

The Hammers sent chief scout Roger Cross to monitor the 25-year-old in last week's FAI Ford Cup semi-final between St Pat's and Bohemians and the midfielder scored in the 3-1 defeat.

But St Pat's manager Johnny McDonnell has revealed that his club have yet to receive an official approach from West Ham for the former Ireland youth international.

"It's very straightforward. We have had no bids for Keith," McDonnell said.

Fahey began his career as a trainee at Arsenal before joining Aston Villa for £250,000 in 1999.

He failed to make the grade at Villa Park, making just one appearance before returning to Ireland, but is desperate for another chance to play in England.

St Pat's are likely to demand a fee of around £300,000 for Fahey, who has also been tracked by Preston, Norwich and Bristol City.
