West Ham United tried and failed to bring in new players on transfer deadline day.
It seems the Hammers were dead set on bringing in a new central defender during the last 24 hours of the window, but in the end they were unable to do so. They were interested in both Fikayo Tomori and Antonio Rudiger, but both ended up staying at London rivals Chelsea.
Of course, there is still time for the Irons to complete some more deals. Whilst the international window has now closed, clubs can still make domestic moves from EFL sides. According to ExWHUemployee, West Ham now plan to target a number of Championship players between now and October 16th, when that respective transfer window slams shut.
Would you be happy with Championship signings?
This has attracted plenty of attention from the Hammers supporters, and it is fair to say they are far from happy. They took to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
Joke of a club 😂 next level 👍🏼

It will never make sense to me why we leave everything to the last minute. Even if we did sign someone yesterday it would have felt desperate.
Our owners have failed time and time again with transfers, and yet they continue to do absolutely no preparation. Ridiculous #GSBOUT

It’ll be the same theme till the championship window closes “we tried” “bids got turned down” “the player refuses to join us” wake me up when we have new ownership #GSBOUT

Dawson would be such an awful signing. Apart from rodon (aren’t Spurs signing him?) I can’t think of any defenders down there good enough? Bottom line is those clowns need to leave ASAP, an absolute joke they are
