West Ham United are looking for January additions, David Gold confirms

West Ham United are intending to be active in the January transfer window.

West Ham United may have enjoyed their best start to a Premier League season in recent memory, but they are not resting on their laurels.

The Hammers rise to fourth has made them one of the surprise packages in England's top flight, but owner David Gold insists that they are still looking to add further quality in the January transfer window.

With the squad chasing a Champions League space, Sam Allardyce is on the hunt for additions to add depth to his impressive squad at the Boleyn Ground and Gold has confirmed new arrivals could come in the new-year. 

In terms of players linked, West Ham are said to be on the hunt for a centre-back and a midfielder in the upcoming transfer window.

The London club have been rumoured to be interested in the likes of Doneil Henry, Atiba Hutchinson, Nicholas N'Koulou and Javi Fuego in recent times, but no targets have been confirmed. 

For now Allardyce's attention will be firmly focused on the side's Boxing Day clash with Chelsea, but it seems that he could be a very busy man throughout the month on January.
