15.43 No word on Carlos Sanchez at the moment. Hilarious article has appeared on several outlets saying we’ve put in a last minute bid of £38 million for German international winger Julian Brandt. As if we haven’t got enough wingers, and as if we have £38 million to spare!
12.48 Kumb report that Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest both want Sam Byram on loan.

“I’m very happy to be here at such an historic Club. I’m very excited, as West Ham are giving me the chance to stay in the Premier League and I’m very happy to be part of this new project. West Ham have great fans and play in an amazing stadium, so to sign here brings me great joy. I’m very motivated."
