David Gold expecting new signings, gives Zarate fitness update on Twitter

The West Ham co-owner has taken to social media once more.

West Ham United co-owner David Gold says he is expecting new signings before the transfer window closes.

And the Hammers chief is also expecting Andy Carroll to return to first-team action soon. More pertinent, though, was his update on Mauro Zarate, of whom less has been heard of in recent days.

The Argentine is currently out injured but Gold has delivered the encouraging news that he expects him back soon - without being too precise in his estimation.

West Ham travel to Anfield to face Liverpool on Saturday afternoon.

Meanwhile, the son of West Ham co-owner David Sullivan has taken to Twitter to commiserate the fact his brother has deactivated his own social media account.

Indeed, Dave Sullivan (Jr) closed his account due to the abuse he received from supporters. And Jack reacted with the following:

With all the tension between fans and the West Ham hierarchy at present, this weekend's Premier League clash at Liverpool takes on a new importance.

It may come too soon for Carroll or Zarate, though, while it will almost certainly come too soon for any new signings.
