Hello Hammers, here is Tuesday’s lunchtime round up.

A Sky Sports source has said that West Ham are close to completing two deals. (Daily Star) 

Robert Snodgrass and Scott Hogan. Two brilliant additions if we can get them over the line.

West Ham have rejected a third bid from Marseille for Dimitri Payet. (Express)

What don’t Marseille understand? It’s £30m or no deal. Either pay up or go away.

Las Palmas have confirmed their interest in signing West Ham striker Jonathan Calleri. (Evening Standard)

Let’s be honest here, he was never gonna stay with us despite scoring at the weekend. I wish him all the best for the future, but he just has not been good enough for us.

West Ham are to make an improved offer of £8m to Hull for winger Robert Snodgrass. (Telegraph)

I think this could be the offer that Hull accept for him. If we include add ons in the deal then I am sure that he will soon be our man.

A reliable journalist has said that West Ham are in pole position to sign Snodgrass this month. (Football Insider)

As we should be. From the teams linked, I would like to think that we would be favourites.

Sam Allardyce is looking to take James Collins to Crystal Palace before the transfer window closes. (Football Insider)

I cannot see this happening. Palace have lots of centre backs as it is, and I don’t think Ginge would leave us anyway.
