Slaven Bilic has refused to comment on the news that the Hammers are in talks with Manchester United over a possible Javier Hernandez switch to Upton Park.
And that in itself is a significant indicator that the club is pressing ahead with negotiations as revealed by ClaretandHugh this week.
Addressing his first press conference since taking over as manager, Slav – when asked directly about the striker – said: ” “The fact is so far in my career, I have never talked about other players who are not part of West Ham United.
“We are trying to be active in the transfer window and so far the board have been very active in the transfer window.
“We are still trying to improve our squad and bring players who in my opinion and the club’s opinion can lift us up. We already have a good team but I will discuss it inside the club.”
