WEST HAM have reportedly set their sights on Cardiff boss Dave Jones to be the club's new manager.

The Daily Mail claim the 54-year-old could leave the Bluebirds after failing to secure promotion to the Premier League through the play-offs this season and that Hammers' owners David Gold and David Sullivan have targeted him as their preferred option.

Jones has been installed as the bookies' favourite, being tipped as low as 4/5 to succeed Avram Grant at Upton Park.

Chris Hughton and Sam Allardyce are the other two frontrunners for the job.
