Transfer window latest: 3 days to go

West Ham continue to be linked with a number of players with little more than three days of the January transfer window remaining.

With Benni McCarthy set to be announced as a new signing imminently the Irons have already made their first capture of the window - although further players could follow before Monday's 5pm deadline.

McCarthy - who met supporters at the Boleyn pub yesterday confirmed that a deal had been struck and that he will wear the number 17 shirt vacated by Luis Jimenez, who has returned to Italy.

Another striker linked with a move to the Boleyn is Egyptian striker Mido, although KUMB.com understands that reports of a short-term loan deal having already been struck are premature. The 26-year-old, whose registration is held by Championship club Middlesbrough is currently on a season-long loan with El Zamalek.

The Telegraph run with a link to Stoke's James Beattie, who is understood to have been made available for transfer by Tony Pulis. Beattie is just one of many pros with a Twitter page, although his latest post gave no indication of a possible move. "Just round Rory D's house, embarrassing the poor lad on FIFA 10," it read; nice to know he's keeping fit ahead of a possible switch...

Tottenham's David Bentley, of whom we brought you news earlier in the week continues to be linked with a loan move to the Boleyn (The Sun); Sky Sports have added credence to the rumour by promoted it to their news-ticker section today, although the same source insists that West Ham's have ended their interest in Manchester City striker Benjani.

Elsewhere Valon Behrami, who we suggested would be linked with a number of clubs before the end of the window is today being touted as a possible summer signing for Serie A outfit Palermo (Sky Sports).
