West Ham fans can look forward to late action in the transfer market according to reliable source ExWHUemployee.
He was responding on Twitter to a fan who asked, “Seeing as the window shuts in just over a week and we’ve not heard a peep, can we assume the window is done for us at this point?”
ExWHUemployee replied with a definitive, “Nope there will be movement”.

Manuel Pellegrini has already signed Sebastien Haller, Pablo Fornals, Roberto and David Martin this summer.
West Ham are trying to sign centre-back Aaron Long from New York Red Bulls but are struggling to get a work permit, according to Sky Sports.
The Hammers have also been linked with a shock move for former Tottenham and Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor [the Sun].
It’s been a decent summer for West Ham already and a couple more incomings would mean fans would be hugely optimistic going into the new season. Sebastien Haller is the standout signing in a club-record deal, and fans are right to be excited about him. He boasts a record of 0.47 goals per 90 minutes and an xG that’s slightly higher [wyscout.com], and the 6ft3in striker offers a serious aerial threat that could bring in other Hammers attackers. He wins more than half of his 12.12 aerial duels per 90 minutes and that could mean goals but more importantly, could open the game up for Felipe Anderson, Pablo Fornals and Andrii Yarmolenko. Who could be coming in the last week of the window? The deal for Long looks to be over because of work permit issues and West Ham fans don’t want Adebayor. However, ExWHUemkployee didn’t specify whether it would be incomings or outgoings. We’re expecting both.
