Nigel Reo-Coker is attracting interest from Sevilla, according to his agent.

Reo-Coker activated a clause in his Bolton contract earlier this month and will leave the Reebok Stadium on June 30th, becoming a free agent in the process.

West Ham United are understood to be keen on a move for the 27-year-old, but his agent, Tony Finnigan, has admitted a move to Spain could materialise over the summer.

"I'm getting loads of agents ringing me up asking whether he is interested in this move or that move but we just have to wait until we get something concrete," Finnigan told

"Sevilla liked him from his Villa days and now he's on the back of a good season for Bolton so they are back in again.

"I went out there last year to talk to them but we couldn't agree anything. When an offer comes, it will be interesting but Nigel wouldn't rule out anywhere at this stage.

"He isn't the sort of player who needs to stay in England for his whole career. He'd be able to cope with a new country so we will have to see.

"It was a shame he had to leave Bolton because he got on well with the manager, but Nigel is a Premier League footballer who has proved himself over the last seven years so he needs to be playing at the top level.

"We're looking at every option because he has had a great season."
