Irons wage kitty covers four more signings


West Ham have enough in the wages pot to cover four more signings!

And they are hoping  they can find buyers or loan clubs for Modibo Maiga and Alou Diarra as that would give them an opportunity to bring in a couple more.

Reims midfielder Prince Oninague is currently holding talks with David Sullivan and Karen Brady although as explained elsewhere on ClaretandHugh a deal is  in the balance as the manager and directors come to a decision on the midfielder’s abilities.

They are working very closely on all deals and we understand there is now agreement that in Cheikhou Kouyate they have sufficient cover at central defence.

A source explained to us: “There’s just enough left in the wages pot to cover four more players but it would really help if the club could do something on the Modibo Maiga and Alou Diarra fronts.

“They are continuing to work on it and there’s always the possibility that clubs will come in for others of ours – it’s still early days in the transfer market.”

    Can’t we buy them out of the remainder of their contracts – possibly offering an immediate lump sum substantially less than the total of the weekly wages to the end of their contracts?

    Maiga would be an expensive contract to but out, I think a French club will come in for him, with a bit of luck!
