Afternoon Hammers, here is a round up of the news this Wednesday lunchtime:

West Ham have made an improved offer of £5m for Hull winger Robert Snodgrass. (Sky Sports)

He isn’t at the top of my list for what we need this window, but I think he would still be a great signing if we pulled it off.

Sky Sports pundits Jeff Stelling and Phil Thompson have slammed West Ham over their transfer conduct. (HITC)

I agree with them on this. We are way too open about our business every year and it makes things so much harder. The board need to learn from their mistakes and be quiet when we are doing deals.

Roma have come to an agreement on personal terms with Sofiane Feghouli, but need West Ham to lower their loan demands. (Sports Witness) 

Its a shame if true, but if we can replace him with Snodgrass then I am all for it.

West Ham have blocked an attempt from Rangers to take Domingos Quina on loan. (Mirror)

West Ham will make a move to sign Joe Hart in the summer transfer window. (Clubcall)

This would be a massive statement of intent from us. He is a brilliant goalkeeper, a great leader and very vocal. He would be an outstanding signing to make.

West Ham are hoping to sign two strikers this January, with Scott Hogan and Jermain Defoe linked. (Star)

I think its clear that we won’t be getting Defoe now. However, Hogan I think we will get. If we are getting another striker as well as Hogan, I would go for someone like Batshuayi, Long or even Berahino.

West Ham have made a bid of £4m for want away Southampton defender Jose Fonte. (Sun)

I would take Fonte all day. Yes he is 33 but he has been one of the stand out defenders in the league for a number of years now. He wants to leave so he would be relatively cheap too. I’m all for this deal.
