Bundesliga side Hamburg are still interested in West Ham midfielder Havard Nordtveit, however, wages could still prove to be an issue, German newspaper Bild report.
Hamburg were keen to sign the Norwegian in January and may look to reignite their interest this summer, however, they are put off by his wages as they look to cut down on their own wage bill, putting the move at serious risk.
The 26-year-old only joined West Ham last summer but may be heading back to Germany, a place where he enjoyed five successful seasons with Borussia Monchengladbach.
Nordtveit endured a frustrating first season with The Hammers, unable to nail down a starting place only completing 956 minutes in the Premier League last season under Slaven Bilic.
The Norwegian ended up filling in at the back at times instead of his preferred midfield role, and may well be allowed to leave London during the window.
