Midfielder wanted by West Ham and Sunderland set for Turkey

West Ham and Sunderland midfield target Jean Makoun is expected to join Turkish outfit Antalyaspor.

The former Cameroon international, 32, was released from his contract at Rennes at the end of last season and has been linked with a switch to England.

Makoun will be a familiar name to fans of the Premier League having spent two disappointing seasons at Aston Villa between 2010 and 2012 – making just 11 appearances in an injury-hit spell.

Despite interest from the Hammers and Dick Advocaat’s men, Makoun, according to L’Equipe, is expected to link-up with his former international team-mate, Samuel Eto’o – who recently made the move to the Akdeniz University Stadium.
