West Ham on the verge of signing trio according to son of co-owner David Sullivan

West Ham United hope to sign as many as three new players by the end of the week according to co-owner David Sullivan's son Jack.

West Ham are already back in competitive action thanks to their involvement in the Europa League.

With the potential for a long Premier League and European season ahead, as well as the dawning of a new era under manager Slaven Bilic, the club has been busy in the transfer market.

The Hammers have already signed goalkeeper Darren Randolph and midfielders Dimitri Payet and Pedro Obiang to add to left back Stephen Hendrie - who was signed in January but only officially joined the club on July 1st.

It seems the transfer activity is about to gather pace, though, if Jack Sullivan's latest tweet is to be believed.

Speaking on social networking website Twitter, Jack - who regularly posts the latest club news - apologised to supporters for a lack of recent updates.

But in doing so he also revealed the Hammers could be on the verge of completing three signings.

He said: "Sorry about the lack of news, but 3 hopeful players are all moving in the right direction! Hopeful will be done by the end of the week."

Hammers linked with a host of top players

The Hammers have been linked with moves for a host of players including Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin, Chelsea's Loic Remy, Paris Saint Germain's Yohan Cabaye, Barcelona's Alex Song and Arsenal's Carl Jenkinson to name but a few.

According to the Daily Mail, the Hammers expect to tie up a fresh loan deal for England right-back Jenkinson who was so impressive for the club last season.

Slaven Bilic's side are expected to complete an Arsenal reunion with the Daily Mail also reporting that another of West Ham's loan stars from last season, Song, is also set to sign - this time permanently.

If Song and Jenkinson, who have both been linked with other clubs since the expiration of their loan deals at the end of last season, are two of the players Sullivan is referring to, it means the third will be something of a surprise.

It could potentially be a defender as Monaco's Aymen Abdennour has been linked with a £14.3 million move by L'Equipe while Italy international Angelo Ogbonna, who plays for Juventus, has also been mentioned, as per the Daily Mail.
