Already today West Ham have signed Napoli defender on loan until the rest of the season, a top signing if you ask me. After this one signing West Ham fans were left waiting for more. This hope was crushed by one man, Sam Allardyce.

When asked whether anyone else would be signing this window Allardyce responded by saying “No, if we do make anymore signings today it will be a loan deal.” Gary Cotterill then continued to ask whether it rules out the move for Lescott, to this question Allardyce replied “ Yes it looks like that.”

Whether this is the case or not remains to be seen. I think that the deal would pretty much hinge on whether Manchester City sign a defender to replace him in time. Also if we can get a player out or not.
