By Alex Taylor
Jack Sullivan has given West Ham fans hope of securing another signing this summer – and fans have taken to Twitter to express their hope a top player could be joining.
The Son of West Ham owner David Sullivan has often provided fans with updates on player transfers, medicals and injuries throughout this summer and left Hammers fans wondering after his latest social media post.
Sullivan delivered the teasing message on his personal Twitter account on Wednesday morning, in the build-up to the 11pm transfer deadline.
Maybe one player coming in today!!!

Despite the fact Sullivan’s message was vague and it remains unclear who, if anyone, West Ham are hoping to sign, it has not stopped supporters getting excited over the message.
Alongside the signing of Ayew and Manuel Lanzini’s transfer being made permanent, Bilic has also completed deals for Sofiane Feghouli, Havard Nordtveit, Ashley Fletcher, Gökhan Töre, Jonathan Calleri, Simone Zaza, Edimilson Fernandes and Arthur Masuaku this summer.
