West Ham are among a number of Premier League clubs to have held talks with Mexico international Diego Reyes, according to reports.

The centre back is currently a free agent after leaving Porto earlier this summer and has reportedly held talks with the Hammers, as they bid to bolster their defensive options further following the signings of Issa Diop and Ryan Fredericks.

But the East London side aren’t the only Premier League club to have shown interest in the 25-year-old, with Reyes also meeting representatives from Watford, Newcastle and Brighton and Hove Albion in recent weeks as well.

Reyes also has interest from Spain, with Real Betis and Sevilla apparently eyeing up a move for the Mexican as well.

The centre-back is no stranger to La Liga having spent time on loan with Real Sociedad and Espanyol in recent seasons.

He returned to Porto following those two loans spells last summer and scored twice in 18 appearances for the club last campaign.

But his contract with the Portuguese giants expired this summer, bringing his five year spell with the Dragons to an end, having signed from Club America in 2013.

Reyes has been capped 53 times by his country and was all set to feature for Mexico at the World Cup this summer, only for a hamstring injury to rule him out of the tournament.

But the 25-year-old free agent is now weighing up his options ahead of the new campaign and he is apparently expected to make a decision over his future within the next week.
