David Gold comments on West Ham United's January transfer plans

West Ham Upton Park

West Ham United appear unlikely to bring in many new players in the January transfer window.

David Gold has suggested to The Sun that West Ham United will not be particularly active in the January transfer window.

Although the injuries are stacking up at Upton Park, Slaven Bilic’s squad is unlikely to be strengthened in the new-year.

The Hammers, instead, will go with the options that they currently have in their squad, as Gold feels that there is enough attacking quality already in their squad to cope.

“We have still got a £35m striker in Andy Carroll. We have also got Nikica Jelavic," Gold stated. 

“We have a supporting striker in Mauro Zarate. There’s attacking options.

“Even with our injuries we have quality international players to cope.”

West Ham are having to deal with the losses of a number of key players, leaving Slaven Bilic’s options short.

Manuel Lanzini, Dimitri Payet, Victor Moses, Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia are currently sidelined, meaning the club’s forward options are looking limited.

The Hammers spent big in the summer transfer window, though, and it seems that Bilic will not be able to invest in his squad again at the next opportunity.

West Ham are currently in seventh place in the Premier League table, and they are one of a number of teams in with a chance of making it into Europe this season.
