West Ham United are ready to pay a loan fee to secure Rob Holding this season.

David Moyes' team is desperate to improve its defence after starting the Premier League season with a loss to Newcastle United.

And The Sun says the Hammers are willing to pay a huge £5 million for a season long loan.

Holding did play for Arsenal in their opening game against Fulham, but may drop out of the team when everyone is available.

Newcastle also wanted Holding, but talks broke down.

The Englishman may wait till the end of the transfer window to see if he is in Mikel Arteta's plans at Arsenal before agreeing to a loan.
