Sam Allardyce wants to bring new arrivals to West Ham and one of the players who is on top of his list is Tottenham’s Kyle Naughton as he could be a long-term replacement for the 32 years old Guy Demel.
Some weeks ago Naughton revealed stated that if his situation with West Ham continues going on the way it is then he would leave Tottenham as he has made less than 9 appearances for the club in this season and he wants more playing time.
Chelsea’s Ryan Bertrand is another player in the watch-list of Sam Allardyce but he might just be a harder target to sign as Jose Mourinho already admitted saying that Bertrand is in his long-term plans despite being out on loan at Aston Villa.
While Ryan Bertrand and Kyle Naughton might be some of the new arrivals of West Bromwich in the summer, Joe Cole is expected to leave the club when the transfer window re-opens.
Joe Cole has struggled to find a spot in the starting lineup of Allardyce and the 32 years old defender is earning around €90,000 per week which is just too much for a player who does not play a fairly important role for West Ham. Cole is expected to make a summer move to Brighton where his wages will take a huge drop but at least he will be getting more playing time.
Cole has received offers from the MLS but it is believed that his future will be set in Brighton where he will be playing and working together with the former Barcelona coach Oscar Garcia.
Sam Allardyce will be looking to finish the season on a positive note with Andy Carroll finally concluding his recovery from the injury he sustained some time ago which has disabled him from playing with West Ham up until now.
Carroll scored the only goal for West Ham during their 3-1 defeat against Stoke City.
