West Ham are certainly enduring teething problems at their new stadium and the January transfer window is crucial for Slaven Bilic’s side, as they eye new recruits to help fend off the threat of relegation.
Whilst full-backs and strikers will be the top of the agenda for many West Ham fans, keeping hold of the best players in east London will certainly be top priority and it’s set to be a difficult few weeks for supporters to endure.
When a club is in the Hammers’ position, it’s only natural to see bigger team’s looking to snipe a deal from a struggling side and the situation seems to be no different for those in claret and blue this month, with a wealth of reports concerning potential exits.
Annoyingly for the drinkers in the Transfer Tavern, many of them centre around star man Dimitri Payet.

That means exits for these two crucial first-team names should be blocked, no matter how tempting the price is.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
