West Ham boss Alan Pardew says he will decide this week whether to sign Fulham defender Jon Harley on a permanent basis.

The left-back has impressed during his loan spell at the club, but his time at Upton Park is set to come to an end after this Saturday’s game against Coventry and it is make your mind up time for Pardew.

The Hammers cannot take him on loan for the rest of the season, so they either have to sign him on a permanent basis or let him return to Fulham.

“Jon Harley is up this Saturday,” Pardew revealed. “I have to make a decision on him and I will do that in the next couple of days.”

Harley is out of favour with the Cottagers and following an impressive stint at Upton Park, is hopeful that the two clubs can come to an agreement.
