Inter Milan's Algerian striker Ishak Belfodil is set to complete his loan move to West Ham after the player expressed his desire to leave the Nerazzurri.

The 21-year-old suffered a lack of playing time with Inter, appearing in just eight matches this season.

The Serie A giants Inter signed the international striker last summer for five years following his strong performance with Parma during the last season. But Belfodil failed to impress at the Nerazzurri.

Belfodil is looking for regular playing time to boost his chances to be included in the Algerian squad in this summer's World Cup. 

Algeria were drawn in Group H alongside Belgium, Russia and Korea.
