    The transfer window closes at 11pm today.  Will there be any movement at West Ham?

    As it stands this morning:

    Possible Players out:

    Valencia, Obiang,  Sakho,  youngsters on loan

    Possible Players in :

    A RB, another striker, a surprise?

    I don’t think Sakho will leave today, January maybe but tbh if he put all the madness behind him he could still do a job for us.

    I would love to see Diafra back to his best for us. Gives defenders the run around.

    Looks like Bony is off to Stoke. We killed our interest in this deal a few days ago apparently.

    Also, just seen reports that Doniel Henry will look to move out on loan today.

    How about Poyet? Seems likely that a permanent move is on the cards.

    I think it’d be good for Poyet & Henry to leave, I don’t think either players have futures with us. Poyet looks good potentially but he’ll never get game time as a CM for us.

    Valencia is awful and has to leave. I don’t even think a championship club would be a good move for him if I’m honest, whereas Sakho I think can find the net when in the right frame of mind so I feel 50/50 about him.

    I don’t know why we didn’t go for Janmaat or Chambers but if we can get a decent RB I’ll be happy with our squad.

    Bony to Stoke could be decent for them as well, it depends how much they use him!

    A few reports going around now about Micha Richards joining. Not sure about that one to be honest, has been bad since moving to florentina. Would Villa let the captain leave?

    Richards has not been getting in the recent Villa team……I liked him when he was younger but seems to have lost it

      Jack pretty much killed this rumour yesterday. The papers seem to be running with it anyway for some reason.

    I’m chuffed Bony isn’t coming.

    Don’t want a player that chooses the money of China over Prem football. Shows a massive lack of drive and hunger to me.

    Watch him spend 6 months trying to avoid injury

    Twitter Rumour that WBA are back in for Sakho at £15m with Berahino coming other way on loan with a view to a permanent next year.

    I love rumours like this

        Maybe.

        But I’d like to think Berahinho is young enough to have made a mistake that he can learn from. If it were a loan deal it would be the perfect opportunity to see his attitude without committing to him.

        Sahko on the other hand seems to have used up a number of chances already.

      Must be a right back (Wolves lad?)

      Guess that means no other striker.

    Hart to Torino is confirmed

    Hopefully Wilshire will go to Roma too. Like to see English players give it a go abroad.

    Just heard from ExWHUemployee and surprisingly the deal for Richards has some legs and is on at this stage. Also, we are talking to Wolves.

    We are currently in talks with 3 right backs. Dominic Iorfa from Wolves, Richards from Villa and Debuchy from arsenal.

    Iorfa is my bet to be a West Ham player come the end of the day.

    Richard is versatile but also comes with big wages and a history of injuries.

    If Richards has come from nowhere to be a target does that mean Ogbonna is out the door?

    Provides cover for both right and central defence?

    If so I wish we hadn’t sent Burke out on loan

    • #11969

      Ben Cooper

      I would be very surprised if Ogbonna goes. No time to get in a replacement. Richards is seen as a RB target. However, it now looks like Arbeloa is our man subject to the rumoured medical going through.

    We are looking to loan Valencia out with a £2m fee and wages paid. Problem is getting him to accept it as he rejected a pay raise at Villa after a £13m bid was accepted.

    Bilic has finally come to terms Antonio is a winger and that’s why we are in for a Right Back.

    What would everyone think of Arbeloa? I know he’s old but I think he’s free, great experience in the Prem AND La Liga… could offer a lot to the youngsters and be great cover

      Looks like he’s the man booked in at Spire Roding! The ‘insider’ has just confirmed that a world cup winning defender is on his way.

      Would we let Enner go without a replacement lined up? Could be an interesting evening.

    Luka Belic to Motherwell will be a good move for the youngster for some competitive first team football. I’m interested to see how he develops!

    Great news on Arbeloa, as I said earlier I’m happy with the signing!

    Fingers are also crossed that Everton will gamble with Valencia (he’s in S America at the moment meaning a medical wouldn’t be possible I assume)

  • #11976

    Arbeloa deal done. A wealth of experience, lucky Sam Byram, what a mentor.

    Tune in to phoenix FM for the deadline special. The Sullivan boys just hinted on something possibly happening in the next hour.

    Enner deal done. Everton on loan with an option to buy.

    So was everyone happy with the window on the whole?

    • #12028

      Delighted. Some very good additions who provide lots of options, but more importantly we kept our best players. It was sad to see Tomkins go but it was a good move for him, he can be a hero there. Following the radio show comments on Zaza, I’m looking forward to seeing him play.
