Biggest STAR Your Club Are Trying To SIGN This Month

Moyes linked with another two Brentford stars

And he has impressed David Moyes, who is desperate to add another central midfielder to West Ham’s ranks.

West Ham have a distinct lack of strength in depth in the middle of the park with only ageing Mark Noble as back-up to Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek.

The Guardian claims the Hammers are keen to sign Dasilva in January.

And Moyes is also being linked with a move for Brentford left-back Henry again.

West Ham were linked with Henry in the summer. But despite impressing in a pre-season game against the Hammers, Moyes elected not to pursue a move for the pacy star.

A recent report from The Athletic claims West Ham are renewing their interest in Henry in light of Arthur Masuaku’s injury.

Thomas Frank issues emphatic response to West Ham’s interest

But Bees boss Thomas Frank has responded to the claims and it’s not good news for West Ham.

Speaking to West London Sport, Frank says no players will be leaving the club in January as they push for promotion to the Premier League.

“I’m not worried,” Frank told West London Sport when West Ham’s interest in the likes of Dasilva and Henry was put to him.

“I understand why Premier League clubs will approach, because we have some very good players.

“No players will leave us in January. That’s not an option. They enjoy playing for Brentford and we are enjoying the journey.

“None of the players want to leave us and we definitely don’t want to let them go.”
