Ben Haim set to join West Ham
Tal Ben Haim
West Ham manager Avram Grant has been reunited with Israeli defender Tal Ben Haim after agreeing to sign him from former club Portsmouth.
The Hammers agreed a deal with the cash-strapped club, relegated from the Premier League last season, after agreeing a compromise on Ben Haim's wages.
West Ham originally offered £30,000 a week, around £8,000 a week short of what the Ben Haim was earning at Portsmouth but they have improved their offer.
