Summer signings update

West Ham United are continuing to make good progress in the search for new players to bolster Avram Grant's squad for the new season.

With the start of pre-season training less than three weeks away, the club is hopeful of following up on the signing of highly-rated Germany midfielder Thomas Hitzlsperger with at least one more exciting new recruit before 5 July. More reinforcements will then follow over the summer months.

West Ham United Chairman David Sullivan said: "It is only right that we keep supporters informed as much as we can of what we are working on, especially as there is so much speculation around this time of year.

"With the World Cup taking place, it is not as easy to conclude deals but I can assure fans we are working 24/7 with the manager to bring new players to the club.

"We have limited resources, with the £100m debt the club carries, but we are going to make every penny count and we 100 per cent assure you that there will be more new arrivals this summer. It is very possible we will have another one in within the next two to three weeks, if not sooner."
