Full-back in talks over Hammers return

Glen Johnson is in talks with West Ham over a return to Upton Park.

Liverpool released Johnson this summer after six years at the club.

The Reds spent £18m on the full-back in 2009 but Brendan Rodgers deemed him as surplus to requirements.

Stoke, as well as Turkish clubs Galatasaray and Besiktas are also thought to be interested in the England international.

Johnson made only the 19 league appearances last season, and at the same time, lost his place in the England side.

Liverpool have already managed to bring in a replacement for Johnson, securing the signing of Nathaniel Clyne this week for £12.5m

West Ham Youth Product

Glen Johnson is a product of the West Ham United academy, which would possibly make a return to his old side more favourable.

He started as a 15-year-old scholar in 2000 before signing a 3-year professional contract in August 2001 before spending some time on loan at London rivals Milwall.
