West Ham look set to splash out on at least two new players in the forthcoming transfer window, according to a report by club confidante Ken Dyer.
Dyer, a close friend of Hammers Chairman Terry Brown and writer for the Evening Standard revealed in his column today that the club are ready to bring in a couple of new faces during the window, which opens in January 2003.
The report reveals that the players are set to be a defender and a striker - although any deals won't be permanent, with the club planning to loan the players until the end of the current season.
Despite a constant stream of denials that the club have any funds available to strengthen the squad it appears that Terry Brown and co have had a recent change of heart.
The recent public displays of discontent by the supporters - which heightened at the weekend when about 100 fans gathered outside the ground after the 1-1 draw with Manchester United to call for the resignation of Brown - will no doubt have strengthened Glenn Roeder's pleas for a fresh injection of cash with which to improve his depleted squad.
