The January transfer window is just around the corner and West Ham could be busy.

Manuel Pellegrini will be assessing his squad and working out whether to bring in new players or get rid of his current options.

Here are the four players who are most likely to leave West Ham next month.

Adrian has been with West Ham since his switch from Real Betis in 2013.

During his five-and-a-half years with the Hammers, the Spaniard has played just shy of 150 games and given fans some memories to savour.

The 31-year-old will be most fondly remembered for his winning penalty against Everton in the FA Cup.

But with Lukasz Fabianski in such fine form, Adrian might choose to leave for the sake of his own career and he should be allowed to.

Andy Carroll is out of contract at the end of the season and his injury record could convince West Ham not to extend his deal.

The 29-year-old is a handful when fit with his height, power and aerial ability.

But with just 132 appearances to his name in seven seasons with the Irons, Carroll is too risky to keep.


To avoid losing him on a free next summer, West Ham might sell the 9-cap ex-England international in January.

Reece Oxford could leave West Ham considering he has been frozen out by Manuel Pellegrini.

The 20-year-old has been unable to add to his 17 West Ham appearances this season.

The England under-20 international plays at centre-back or as a holding midfielder but he has not reached the level that West Ham fans might have expected.

Arsenal and Everton could offer Oxford an escape route, as per The Mirror, with West Ham open to selling him.

Angelo Ogbonna

Angelo Ogbonna is probably not content with playing second fiddle at centre-half.

Issa Diop and Fabian Balbuena have impressed since arriving this summer and Ogbonna has had to settle for a spot on the bench.

The Italy international might choose to leave in January if game time is still limited.

But Balbuena’s knock against Watford could earn the 30-year-old a reprieve as he tries to win back his starting spot.
