West Ham have space for two free agents

West Ham have space for two free agents

West Ham United could still be in the market for a couple of free agents despite the transfer window being closed.

According to a report by, the Hammers have only named a 23-man squad for the Premier League season, leaving two spaces available should Manuel Pellegrini look to the free market.

Clubs can still sign players who were originally out of contract from their previous teams before the transfer window closed and it appears the Irons could be open to filling those spots with potential options.

West Ham spent big this summer, having spent almost £100million to bring the likes of Andriy Yarmolenko, Felipe Anderson, Lukasz Fabianski, Issa Diop and others to the London Stadium.

Jack Wilshere also joined the Hammers on a free transfer after his contract with Arsenal expired, as did Ryan Fredericks from Fulham.

However, the side have struggled to make the most of adding those talented additions to their squad this season, as they have failed to pick up a single Premier League point as they head into the international break.

The Verdict:

With most teams in the Premier League naming a full 25-man squad for the current campaign, it appears a little strange that West Ham have not.

With two spaces still left, the Hammers could well have one eye on the market for free agents, although it remains to be seen on who is still available and could be good enough to help the team change their fortunes around.

The Irons, however, have used the squad list to their advantage, with the likes of Declan Rice and Diop being named in the Under-21 category, so that could be why there are spots still available for Pellegrini to utilise.
