Irons up the ante for dazzling Dorrans

The Hammers have been chasing the Scotland international all summer

and have already seen two offers rejected for the 23-year-old. West

Ham saw their first £4million bid rejected for Dorrans back in

April and they saw an improved £4.5million offer turned down

last week. However, the Hammers are refusing to give up on the

gifted midfielder – a £150,000 signing from Livingston – and

are thought to have increased their offer again to a fee in the

region of £5.5million. West Brom are loathe to lose the

skilful playmaker with Dorrans playing a key role in helping them

win promotion to the Premier League last season.
