Cape Town - Forgotten Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has attracted the interest of four top English Premiership clubs.

The "Little Pea" is expected to leave Manchester United in the summer after failing to impressive Louis van Gaal.

Real Madrid, where Hernandez made a surprise loan move to at the start of the season, are also not interested in making the move permanent.

However, Hernandez could remain in the English Premiership with Tottenham Hotspur, Everton, West Ham United and Stoke all keen on the player, according to the Daily Star.

The English source reports that West Ham are in pole position to sign Hernandez ahead of Spurs, Everton and Stoke.

Hernandez, who has three goals and two assists to his name in La Liga, could leave Old Trafford for just £8 million - a bargain for a 26-year-old striker with a proven record of scoring goals in the top-flight of English football.

Real Madrid are expected to promote youth prospects to fill Hernandez's place as back-up to France star Karim Benzema.
