David Moyes is keen to strengthen his defence before the transfer window shuts on Monday night and was hopeful of signing Caleta-Car for around £20m. However, the 24-year-old Croatia centre-back has left West Ham disappointed after indicating that he has no desire to leave Marseille, who have been drawn in a Champions League group with Manchester City, Olympiakos and Porto.
