West Ham United captain Mark Noble says he wants new signings at the club this summer.

But the skipper says young players will be important too as West Ham prepare for a season with Europa League football.

Many West Ham fans are already getting restless over the club’s lack of transfer activity.

West Ham have been linked with a plethora of players in all manner of positions from all over the world.

Some West Ham fans getting restless over lack of transfer activity

But so far the only arrivals have been three young players who will first join up with the academy side.

David Moyes is desperate to sign Jesse Lingard permanently and bring in a new striker as well as a centre-back and central midfield cover.

Fans also want to see the club push the boat out to get talisman and Euro 2020 finalist Declan Rice signed up to a new deal.

And supporters are not alone in wanting new arrivals.

Noble says young players will be important this season but wants new arrivals

Captain Noble is hoping the club can get some business done too (whufc.com).

“We’re still missing five or six players that haven’t come back yet. The obvious ones that have just been to the Euros and a few others,” Noble told whufc.com.

“But we’ve brought quite a few young lads with us, it’s good, gives them a taste of what first team life is like and they might even ingrain themselves in the manager’s head.

“Because for the games we’re going to have this year it’s going to be very important we use the young lads and hopefully we get a few new bodies in.”

Hammers clearly making space for new signings

West Ham are clearly making space for new arrivals.

Fabian Balbuena has been allowed to leave the club.

And Felipe Anderson has returned to Lazio in a cut-price deal.

Andriy Yarmolenko has been heavily linked with a move away too.

Could it be the club is clearing space for two big deals?

In other West Ham news, conspiracy theories surrounding Issa Diop have been squashed.

And in terms of transfers, the Hammers are said to be ‘in talks’ with what could turn out to be their most important signing for years.
