Jack Sullivan explains West Ham tactics on deadline day
By Dominic Toner
Jack Sullivan, son of co-owner David Sullivan, believes that West Ham are unlikely to sign anyone on deadline day.
The Hammers have already signed Robert Snodgrass and Jose Fonte in January, with the Dimitri Payet the high profile player to leave the club.
The Londoners have been heavily linked with a move for Brentford striker Scott Hogan, but Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol claimed on his personal Twitter account that West Ham had ruled themselves out.

Slaven Bilic appears to be content with his squad and his side have moved up to 10th in the Premier League table after back-to-back victories over Middlesbrough and Crystal Palace respectively.
Sullivan predicts that West Ham will wait until the summer transfer window and remain quiet on deadline day.

“Very unlikely we sign anyone today, unless someone quality comes available. The manager would prefer we hold the money till the summer,” Sullivan wrote on his personal Twitter account.

The Hammers will turn their attention to a game on Wednesday night against Manchester City if they are to remain quiet in the final day of the window.
They host Pep Guardiola’s side at the London Stadium in the league and will be desperate to avenge the humiliating 5-0 defeat in the FA Cup.
