Hammers predict summer window opening date

West Ham expect the summer transfer window to open within 24 hours of the season being completed – assuming that turns out to be the case.

Hammers sources are preparing for the opening of the window although clearly huge sums will not be spent by them or any other club given the circumstances.

UEFA has determined that August 2 must be the final date by which European leagues must finish their seasons by.

So if that turns out to be the case the action will probably be crammed into a month with the players have a break and pre-season with perhaps the new season kicking off a couple of months later..

The Hammers are keen to sign a second striker and a left back although at this stage no names are being leaked.

ClaretandHugh was told by a very well placed source this morning: “There’s no definite date but in all likelihood ¬†after the last game domestically. We won’t know for certain until we start.”
