Sky Sports: Personal terms agreed as £20m West Ham signing travels for Friday medical
West Ham United appear to have won the race for Hull City star man Jarrod Bowen, according to Sky Sports.
It is reported that the Irons agreed a deal with the Championship club overnight, with the figure set to be around £20million.
According to the report, West Ham have also agreed personal terms with the winger, who is now travelling to East London to undergo a medical at the club.
It was suggested that Crystal Palace were Bowen’s preferred destination, but West Ham have beaten their London rivals to his signature, with Roy Hodgson looking at other targets.
The Mirror reported on Thursday that David Moyes wanted to bring in three fresh faces on deadline day, with Bowen looking set to kickstart a busy day.
Bowen is certainly one of the best players currently outside of the Premier League and would be an impressive coup for the Irons as they look to avoid relegation.

The 23-year-old has been in fine form for a couple of years now. He has managed to be involved in 49 goals since the beginning of last season in the Championship.
Bowen’s ability to play both out wide and as a striker will give Moyes much needed versatility in the final third – an area his side have struggled in, Sebastien Haller their top scorer with only six goals.
The Hull star recently shined against Chelsea in the FA Cup, leaving Joe Cole drooling – his comments proving the Irons could have pulled off a masterclass with this deal.
"He's in the shop window today, there'll be a lot of scouts here."
"Go and show people you can play against top sides."
Jared Bowen will have a lot of eyes on him today considering his brilliant Championship form…
