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.
