Transfer Gossip

This doesn’t look as if it will be a very busy deadline day for West Ham, with only one likely signing, Albian Ajeti from Basel. I won’t be able to update this page a lot during the day as I am at the Edinburgh Fringe…

14.12 Grady Diangana off on a season long loan to WBA. Gutted. But it will be good experience for him.

14.10 Tottenham are reportedly trying to flog Victor Wanyama to West Ham today. Can’t quite see this happening. He’s a very good player but we’re overburdened with midfielders and we’d have to strike a foreign player off our squad list to accomodate him.

09.01 And as if by magic, David Gold has just confirmed the signing on Twitter of Albian Ajeti. “Good morning. I am pleased to announce the signing of Switzerland international striker Albian Ajeti from FC Basel for an undisclosed fee. The 22-year-old joins the Hammers on an initial four-year contract, with an option to extend for a further two seasons. Welcome Albian.”

08.56 Albian Ajeti looks to be a certain signing. He’s a striker from Basel, with the fee being around £8 million.
