West Ham: Irons weighing up late signing

West Ham: Irons weighing up late signing -West Ham News

West Ham United are in touch with agents as they consider further transfer business before the deadline.

That’s according to transfer insider Dean Jones, who was speaking to GiveMeSport.

The lowdown

It’s been a slightly frustrating Deadline Day for the Hammers, who have failed with a number of attempted moves.

Centre-back Jan Bednarek was seemingly on his way to the London Stadium but ultimately snubbed David Moyes’ side to join Aston Villa instead.

As for right-backs, Manchester United rejected an approach for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, while Torino turned down a bid for Ola Aina.

The latest

Jones now says that West Ham aren’t content to withdraw from the market just yet, and are in discussions with representatives who want to facilitate moves.

He says there’s still a chance the Hammers get a deal done if a suitable opportunity arises.

“West Ham are not finished yet and sources are indicating that they are still fielding ideas from agents, who are trying to find a home for their clients.

“Anything is still possible if the right player comes along.”

The verdict

West Ham have already had an excellent summer.

Only two clubs in the whole of the Premier League – Chelsea and Manchester United – have spent more than the Irons’ £163.8million so far.

Likewise, only Nottingham Forest and Fulham have done more deals than the Hammers’ eight.

On that basis, they should already have the tools to at least match last season’s seventh-place finish, if not push a little higher.

Equally, though, supporters may be pleased to see them remain active into the final hours of the window. It shows the extent of their ambition and their refusal to be satisfied, even after such a busy few months.
