West Ham Complete Chamakh Loan Signing

West Ham United have confirmed to Sky Sports News that they have completed the signing of Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh on a six month loan deal.

Irons boss Sam Allardyce had said earlier today in his press conference that 'We have made an enquiry and that is all we have done at the moment,'

'The situation with Andy Carroll injured and Modibo Maiga going to the African Nations Cup, at this time as a striker we have Carlton Cole and that is it until Andy gets fit.

'There is a possibility that deal can be done, we are looking at it yes as well as a number of others.'

David Sullivan's son Julian then tweeted that Chamakh had been at the club's training ground, adding, 'Sad with this news.....not my choice :('

But the East London side seem to have confirmed that a deal has now gone through. Hannover 96 have likewise confirmed that they are at an advanced stage in talks with Johan Djourou over a similar loan move.

Lewis Holtby will be a Spurs player this summer. Deal agreed with Schalke.

Some fans might have cared. Some fans are racist; I don't associate myself with them, either.

I'm sure the owner's son's tweet will do a world of good for Chamakh's confidence.

I have not seen Holtby often enough to comment on whether we lost a good player, but based on my limited viewing in the CL and Bundesliga, I think he can add value to an Arsenal squad. Good signing for Spurs.

Suprising news on the grapevine is that you're in serious talks for David Villa. Even at 31 he's a wonderful player, he'd arguably - instantly - be the most talented player in the league if you signed him. For that reason i'm not gonna gloat over Holtby - You look like you have your own young talented German midfielder anyway. Still its refreshing as a Spurs fan to have a manager with real plan instead of Joe Cole, Ryan Nelsen & Louis Saha.

This only frees up moves for loanees, same with Gervinho, end of season we'll be as you were - and paid a lot of their wages.

David Villa does not inspire. Has been. 32. Injury prone. Barca hasbeen.
