West Ham are looking to tie up deals for three defenders over the next 72 hours, with James Collins, Ivan Ramis and Sebastian Boenisch coming in.
Ivan Ramis will be the marquee signing of the three having good form and pedigree for Mallorca and is a big imposing centre back who we will need in our first season back in the Premier League. Rumours earlier were that Wigan were still in the hunt but it now looks like the Spanish player is set for Upton Park.
James Collins or The Ginger Peleas he is known in the east end is well known to Hammer fans and is poised to re-join us for a nominal fee from Aston Villa, the club we sold him to a few years back.
Sebastian Boenisch is a Polish international who is without a club having left German club Werder Bremen last month, he has had no shortage of offers from German outfits but he would like to try his hand in the Premier League with West Ham his likely destination.
The Twitter universe has also been going crazy today with some even mentioning Carlos Tevez for a dramatic return, as much as I would like that I can’t see it happening, but I never thought Tevez and Mascherano would have signed for us on that dramatic deadline day a few years back so you can never say never, just highly unlikely!
