West Ham have renewed their interest in Sporting's William Carvalho - if they sign him what happens to Mark Noble?

West Ham have resolved their differences with Sporting after their pursuit of William Carvalho sparked a war of words, the club have announced.

Former manager Slaven Bilic was a keen admirer of Carvalho - with a potential deal for the 25-year-old being the reason behind the controversy between the two teams - and his replacement David Moyes appears to also be interested. The Portuguese club accused West Ham of making an illegal approach to their player, while West Ham released emails that seemed to confirm they had made an official approach.

"Subsequent to this, the clubs have had positive communications and the matter is now resolved".

Despite the two clubs being able to build bridges after their summer fallout, a deal to get Carvalho to the London Stadium could still prove hard. "On this basis, friendly relations between the clubs will resume and there will be no barriers to both clubs negotiating or working together in the future".

A West Ham statement said: "West Ham and Sporting Clube de Portugal acknowledge that a breakdown in communication based in contacts between representatives from both clubs in respect of a possible transfer of William Carvalho was the cause of a misunderstanding".
