West Ham United are doing well in the Premier League at the moment.

West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady said on the Football Tonight show on BT Sport 1 on Friday evening that the club do not have any plans to sign players in the January transfer window.

“January is never a great time for any club to buy players because most of the good players are not really available for sale,” said Brady when asked about West Ham’s plans in January regarding new players.

“So we weren’t planning to do anything. Whether something comes up that’s quite interesting and makes sense for the manager, then we might consider it, but no real plans.”

West Ham signed a number of players in the summer transfer window, including Pedro Obiang, Dimitri Payet, Angelo Ogbonna and Victor Moses.

The London outfit have suffered some major injuries in recent weeks, including one to star player Payet.

The Hammers, though, are still very much in the hunt for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.

Slaven Bilic’s side are seventh in the league table at the moment with 23 points from 15 matches.

West Ham are just six points behind Manchester United, who are currently fourth and occupy the final Champions League spot.

The Hammers will return to league action this afternoon when they take on Stoke City at the Boleyn Ground.
