West Ham were unable to complete the transfer for a highly-rated full back this window despite talks taking place, it has been reported by ExWHUEmployee.

Sean Moore, who is 17 and currently plies his trade with Cliftonville, was tipped to be making a deadline day move to East London, with Ex reporting that the club were then looking at the option to loan the player back until the end of the season.

However, despite discussions taking place between all parties, it now appears that the move to West Ham is likely to be finalised in the summer, thus making our Hammers deadline day activity rather uneventful.

Ex has reported that West Ham will now monitor Moore closely for the remainder of the season, with a view to get a deal over the line once the transfer window opens at the end of the current campaign.

Also, as reported by The West Ham Way yesterday, Birmingham City did opt to sign Emmanuel Longelo on a permanent deal from West Ham for a fee believed to be £400,000, with the left-back putting pen to paper on a 3.5 year deal for the midlands club.

Attention now goes back to Premier League action, with our Hammers looking to build on a run form which has seen 3 victories and 1 loss in the last 5 matches in all competitions. A trip to Newcastle this weekend presents David Moyes an opportunity to show that West Ham are turning a big corner this season.
