We need them at this time of year. It’s not just injuries, it’s suspensions and it’s the flu season and we could lose more players

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed he will be delving into the transfer market come January.

The Hammers are currently just two points behind leaders Southampton in the Championship table.

However, ‘Big Sam’ doesn’t want to West Ham rest on their laurels and is planning on making a couple of transfer window additions.

Allardyce was speaking after a disappointing 2-1 loss against Burnley at Upton Park on Saturday.

The Hammers chief is keen to move on form that loss and concentrate on maintaining a run that saw them win six of their previous seven Championship fixtures.

With the transfer window opening on January 2, Allardyce is keen to identify his targets early, in order to get any deals done quickly.

“It’s not too early to be looking. We hope to get a couple of players in January,” commented Allardyce.

“We need them at this time of year. It’s not just injuries, it’s suspensions and it’s the flu season and we could lose more players.

“We have to hope we don’t get too affected, but we will get in the market for a couple of players in January.”

West Ham have an away future at Reading next up, where they will hope to add to an impressive away record that has seen them win seven and lose just once in ten games.
