Hammers miss out on Marseille midfielder

Amalfitano.jpgThe Football Transfer Tavern is still full of West Ham fans and most of them are discussing who they can still bring to their club rather than their weekend defeat.

But they may be left disappointed, as it seems that one supposed incoming player has returned home without signing a deal.

According to TalkSport, the East London outfit were all but certain to secure the signing of Morgan Amalfitano before deadline day.

It now looks like the Hammers have missed out on the 29-year old with French media now suggesting that he could sign a deal with Lorient.

It comes as a blow to Sam Allardyce as he continues to try and strengthen his side after a disappointing opening day defeat to rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
