Cape Town - Out of contract striker Samuel Eto'o has placed top clubs on alert after rejecting the chance to join West Ham United.

Samuel Eto'o failed to agree personal terms with West Ham and will not be linking up with Sam Allardyce's side ahead of the new EPL season, reports talkSPORT

Eto'o is a free agent and West Ham moved the quickest in an effort to secure his signature but talks between the club and the Cameroon star have now ended.

The Cameroon star is wanted by a number of clubs across the Middle East but the player wishes to remain in England.

After snubbing the contract offer from West Ham, Sunderland's Gus Poyet is being linked with an offer for the 33-year-old striker.

Eto'o proved to be a great signing for Chelsea last term but fell out favour with Jose Mourinho after the pair clashed following comments on the player's age.
