Whilst we know our club of old and won’t be getting too excited about the Max Kilman situation until he is pictured in a Claret and Blue kit with arms crossed for the PR photos, it does seem that a medical is booked today so, barring Zouma-esque undiagnosed dodgy knees we should all be seeing the West Ham official communique in the next 24 hours.

In-the-know Journalist Fabrizio Romano has called this with his trademark ‘Here we go’ declaration of a done deal with ‘medical due Friday:’ Mind you, he has been wrong once recently regarding our pursuit of Fabricio Bruno: So I guess he’s confident this time around and certainly wouldn’t call this ‘done’ without being pretty certain.

Interestingly, the same source claims to know the identity of the next targets – this originally dating back to earlier this week when he claimed we were on the cusp of three signings as reported on KUMB.

Steinberg’s transfer update suggests we are well on the route to signing a striker, midfielder and a winger , and have had talks with Southampton over signing Kyle Walker Peters as mentioned earlier in the week on C and H. Repeating the claim about Walker Peters coming – possibly in the exchange deal noted with Flynn Downes going to the Saints- is suggested as being the next piece of business.

The thought occurs to me that with those priorities, could it be that Emerson Palmieri isn’t going anywhere this window if we are ‘sticking’ with  just him plus Cress on the left. Interestingly, that contrasts with Simon’s piece in todays C and H: We will follow this with interest and see how it pans out.

Steinberg has been proven right with the £40 million signing so I’m pretty confident that more news will follow shortly exactly along the lines of the Max Kilman deal, which grew in rumour strength over the last week before crystallising yesterday: Expect the same thing in the next few days with Walker Peters, then the ‘striker, midfielder and winger’.

Why not. I’m positioning myself firmly in the ‘optimistic’ category as these incomings continue to materialise – ‘optimistic’ regardless of the customary negativity from some of the gloom merchants: To my mind,  it’s all change.  Decisive action, building strength in our squad and the Head Coach getting the players he wants. Now, that’s more like a massive club.

Like everyone else, lifelong WHU fan and season ticket holder in old BMU stand at Upton Park from 2003. Billy Bonds these days with my adult son and impatiently waiting for my Grandson to be old enough to initiate him before his mum grabs him for Man U. All opinions are my own very biased ones.
