The club’s secret insider has been hinting about an incoming right back.
The insider said “With just hours until the transfer window closes, the Insider can reveal that the Hammers have made a major breakthrough in their attempts to bring in another big name signing. The Insider revealed yesterday that the Club were hopeful of signing another right back today and it seems they are edging closer to getting their man.My sources confirmed to me that a top Spanish World Cup winning defender is due to undergo a medical this afternoon and will hopefully put pen to paper before the 11pm deadline. The player has a wealth of experience, has won honours at domestic and international level and has played for some of the biggest clubs in Europe.”
That Spanish world cup defender is though to be Alvaro Arbeloa who paid for Liverpool and Real Madrid as well as Spain in 2010 World Cup. The free agent is understood to be undergoing a medical at the Spire Roding hospital.
The insider also confirms we were never interested in Jack Wilshere adding
“Transfer deadline day always provides a few shocks along the way and there was a major surprise when reports stated that Arsenal were preparing to allow Jack Wilshere to make a loan move away from the north London Club.I have been told that the Club believe Jack Wilshere is a fantastic player, but that is not a position they are looking to strengthen at the moment.”
The insider finishes his briefing with confirming that that a few players should be leaving the club.
“As suggested in the media, there could still be some players leaving the Club on loan before the transfer window closes, but whufc.com will be the only place for confirmation of any ins and outs throughout the evening.”
Those players are expected to be loan moves Pedro Obiang completing a move to Italy with an option to buy, Enner Valencia to Swansea on loan with an option to buy and Doneil Henry to AC Horsens in Denmark.
