Harry Redknapp is impressed with West Ham's transfer business, but is not getting carried away.

Harry Redknapp has told The Telegraph's Total Football Live that he was impressed with the business West Ham have been able to do on transfer deadline day.

West Ham completed the signings of Michail Antonio, Nikica Jelavic, and brought in Victor Moses and Alex Song on loan.

It adds to a solid summer transfer window which saw the club bring in exciting midfielders Dmitri Payet and Manuel Lanzini among others, who have both stood out in the early part of this season.

Redknapp however has said that despite the good signings, West Ham should not get carried away, and predicts a mid-table finish for his old side.

He said: "They did well, they strengthened their squad. They bought well earlier in the summer, Payet looks a real good player, a top player. I think they are in for a really good season.

"I think they'll be OK, middle of the table team again, Sam (Allardyce) did a good job and I'd like to see Slaven do well, he's a good lad."

After wins away to Liverpool and Arsenal, fans could not be blamed for having even higher expectations, but disappointing home defeats to Leicester and Bournemouth will ensure nobody is getting carried away.

The new signings add competition for places, and all have experience of playing in English football, at either Premier League or Championship level.

If they can get their home form right and begin to show consistency, a Europa League place is not out of the question - whether they ultimately want to be in the competition again or not.
