West Ham are still hoping to conclude a deal with Southend United for defender Bilel Mohsni.
The 25-year-old Frenchman, who has also featured for his current club as a striker was the subject of a bid, reported to be in the region of £150,000, from West Ham last week.
And despit some sources claiming that Southend had rejected the offer, it is understood that West Ham's offer remains on the table.
Mohsni is the only one of the club's latest batch of triallists that West Ham are interesting in signing on a permanent basis.
Dutch defender Michael Lamey, who featured for the Hammers during their recent pre-season tour of Germany was released shortly after.
Meanwhile Colin Kazim-Richards, who also represented United in four pre-season fixtures was similarly let go without being offered a permanent contract - despite scoring in the 2-2 draw against Energie Cottbus last week.
The former Sheffield United striker, who has spent the last few years of his career playing in Turkey in now hoping to secure a loan move to Championship side Blackburn Rovers, who were relegated from the Premier League last season.

''What is the matter with Allardyce? We are already letting Sam Baldock go, a proven natural goal scorer and now Kazim Richards. Are the West Ham management gone completely nuts? These players have got so much potential in the Premier League and we're letting them slip through our fingers like the majority of good talent we've missed already!''
