West Ham United have been linked with a host of players ahead of the January transfer window.

West Ham United boss Manuel Pellegrini has told Football.London that he will only start making his January transfer plans when all his players are back from injury.

West Ham have been linked with a huge number of players, and Pellegrini has noticed the rumours in the press.

And although the Argentine boss has refused to rule out the possibility of incoming additions, he has suggested that no final decisions have been made yet.


Pellegrini said: “There have been 14 or 15 players apparently coming to this club. We will decide when we have got some of our players back.”

West Ham spent big in the summer, so it remains to be seen how much they will have to invest in January.

The Hammers have hardly made a roaring start to the new season, with Pellegrini’s side only collecting 11 points from 11 games.

Pellegrini's side are currently sat in 13th place in the Premier League table, and improvements will be required.

West Ham have been shown to be short in central midfield and full-back at times this season, so additions in both those positions could be on Pellegrini’s shopping list.

West Ham are next in action at the weekend when they take on struggling Huddersfield Town.
