LONDON - Velez Sarsfield striker Mauro Zarate says he has agreed a three-deal deal with West Ham as he closes in on a return to the English Premier League.

Zarate, who was the top scorer in the Argentine league last season, spent the second half of the 2007-08 Premier League campaign on loan at Birmingham from Qatari side Al Sadd. He then moved to Italian side Lazio and also played in Serie A for Inter Milan.

The 27-year-old Zarate tells British broadcaster Sky Sports on Monday that he has been approached by West Ham and that "it's a new chance for me."

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has been told to make his team more entertaining next season after securing a third straight year in the Premier League.
