Eyes open at stadium for late deadline day clues

West Ham's dithering in appointing a director of football may give them a disadvantage signing players.

Eyes open at stadium for late deadline day clues

Ok tonight is the night and as dear old DG would have said: “Don’t go to bed!”

The Hammers are allegedly still looking to do deals as the deadline hour approaches and as mentioned in a previous story,. clues will be available for those at the game tonight.

David Sullivan and/or Tim Steidten’s absence will perhaps tell us a lot as it will suggest that there is late activity going on with an important game in progress.

Should Sullivan be missing from the director’s box or Steidten from the warm up process he has been sharing with Moyes all season, it’s a fair bet someone may be on the way into the club.

It seems that won’t be Jota as he has now reportedly signed a deal at his Saudi club according to reports yesterday.

But there remains an outside chance that Ibrahim Osman may be set to arrive despite total confusion surrounding the deal earlier in the week.

So keep those eyes clamped on Sully and Steidten tonight for those late clues!
