West Ham to step up goalkeeper search amid fears Lukasz Fabianski faces long spell out

West Ham were waiting for scan results on Lukasz Fabianski’s injury amid fears he has suffered a recurrence of the hip issue which ruled him out for three months at the end of 2019.

Should Fabianski be sidelined for a lengthy period, the Hammers will accelerate their plans to sign a new goalkeeper this month.

Fabianski pulled up while taking a goal-kick during their 1-0 defeat at Sheffield United on Friday night and losing the Pole would be a major blow. David Martin replaced Fabianski and his mistake led to the Blades’ winner.

New West Ham boss David Moyes moved to sign Darren Randolph from Middlesbrough, but the £4million switch is on hold after the club discovered issues during a medical. Randolph has not played since November 24 because of a thigh problem and West Ham want to be sure he will not be out for a long period.

If Fabianski is out for a lengthy spell and Randolph is not fit, West Ham will have to consider other options, including Cardiff’s Neil Etheridge. The home for trending sports news.
