West Ham have submitted a second offer in their quest to sign Hull midfielder Robert Snodgrass, according to Sky Sports.

The London side have shown a keen interest in signing the midfielder and have increased their bid to £5 million after having a derisory first bid of £3 million rejected in the first week of the transfer window.

Snodgrass rejected a new long-term contract with Hull in December before his contract was extended by the club until the summer of 2018 as part of a clause in his current deal.

The 29-year-old has been instrumental for the Tigers this season, standing out as the best player in their side as the club fight a relegation battle and other problems at the club, making 23 appearances and scoring nine goals in all competitions.

He has also shone for Scotland, scoring a hat-trick in a 5-1 World Cup qualifier win over Malta in September.

West Ham are not the only English club linked with the midfielder, with Middlesbrough, West Brom and Newcastle United all rumoured to be interested in the Scot in recent weeks.
