David Sullivan gives clear indication about West Ham's January transfer plans

David Sullivan claims it's unlikely that West Ham will be making many signings in January.

West Ham United co-chairman David Sullivan has told Sky Sports that they are unlikely to make any signings unless somebody leaves - but doesn't want to sell anybody.

The Hammers are currently on an eight-game winless run, with manager Slaven Bilic attempting to fight on despite a host of major injury blows in recent weeks.

The likes of Winston Reid, Dimitri Payet, Manuel Lanzini, Victor Moses, Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll have all been put on the sidelines due to big injuries, and some Hammers fans want to see the club bring in new signings to compensate for those injury blows.

The last two summer transfer windows have seen West Ham snap up the likes of Angelo Ogbonna, Aaron Cresswell, Alex Song, Pedro Obiang, Cheikhou Kouyate, Mauro Zarate, Dimitri Payet, Manuel Lanzini, Michail Antonio, Enner Valencia, Diafra Sakho and Nikica Jelavic - and it seems that the club's finances have felt the force of those additions over the last 18 months.

West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan has told Sky Sports that there is currently no money in the wage bill to make new signings, and any new additions would depend on players being sold.

However, Sullivan doesn't want to lose any big players, making it clear that West Ham plan to be very quiet during the January transfer window, unless fringe players leave the club and allow new signings to come in.

"Unless somebody leaves the club that is on our wage bill at this moment in time," said Sullivan. "We don't have a penny to spend on wages. We would only let fringe players go unless someone make an offer we can't refuse. We're a non-selling club," he added.
