West Ham United set to announce second summer signing

Cheikhou KouyateWest Ham United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are hoping their penultimate season at Upton Park is a good one.

They crave sexy football and have already seen their club sign Mauro Zarate from Velez Sarsfield this summer.

But according to the Daily Star, there could be another player on the way with Anderlecht youngster Cheikhou Kouyate coming in as part of a £7 million deal.

The highly-rated defender will now undergo a medical with the East London outfit before signing a four-year contract.

Despite interest from Spanish side Valencia, Sam Allardyce seems to have secured his man breaking into his £20 million transfer budget in the process.

Kouyate will now battle James Collins, Winston Reid and James Tomkins for a place in West Ham United’s starting eleven and Irons supporters will be hoping the Senegalese international isn’t a transfer replacement for the outstanding New Zealand international star, Reid.

West Ham fans. Is Sam Allardyce doing enough to win you over or are you still disappointed that he’s in charge? Let us know your thoughts below.
