A selection of the latest news concerning West Ham United.

Michail Antonio offer rejected

West Ham have reportedly seen an offer for Michail Antonio rejected by Nottingham Forest, according to the Mirror. It is stated that a £4 million bid, plus Hammers winger Matt Jarvis, was offered, but Forest have no desire to sell their star player.

It is expected that West Ham will return with another offer for Antonio before the close of the transfer window.

Modibo Maiga exit delayed

According to the Times, Modibo Maiga’s exit from West Ham could be delayed despite agreeing a deal with Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr. He was reportedly set to join the side this week, but with the Hammers still struggling to sign a new forward, the report claims that they will hold off on the deal until after this weekend.

If the Irons do manage to bring in one of their transfer targets prior to the upcoming round of fixtures, Maiga will be allowed to leave the club.

Talks ongoing with Victor Moses

West Ham continue to hold talks with Victor Moses of Chelsea concerning a move to East London, as reported by the Mail. The Nigerian winger has been linked with an exit from Stamford Bridge, and the Hammers are hoping a deal can be struck before the close of the window. However, it is also stated that Chelsea are considering offering Moses to Everton as a part-exchange for the deal to sign John Stones.
