Olympiacos and West Ham interested in Sani Kaita

Greek giants Olympiacos have joined the hunt to sign Nigeria international midfielder Sani Kaita. There are speculations too that English Premier League side West Ham are another likely suitors seeking the signature of the Kano indigene.

After loan spells in Russia in the past two seasons, Kaita still has a contract with French side Monaco, but he could well be on the move again, either to his preferred destination England, where West Ham have made enquiries; Olympiacos in Greece or Spain, where he has interested Espanyol and Sevilla.

"We're only waiting for a concrete offer from the interested clubs before we really know where he will be playing in the new season," disclosed one of Kaita's representatives, Tijjani Babangida, to

"Kaita's preferred choice is England and he can get a work permit because he has featured in more than 70% of Nigeria's matches in the last two years."

Defensive midfielder Kaita hogged the headlines for the wrong reasons during the 2010 World Cup when he was sent off for a touchline tangle with a Greek player.

There will later be death threats against him after Nigeria lost the match 2-1 to further narrow their chances of making it to the knockout stage of the tournament in South Africa.
