Deadline day latest

West Ham are being linked with a series of deals as the January transfer window enters its last 12 hours.

The Daily Mail claim that the purported move to bring Paul Robinson to Upton Park remains a possibility, despite suggesting that it is being held up by 'complications'. However other sources claim that West Ham's interest never extended beyond the enquiry stage.

Alou Diarra looks set to leave east London ahead of tonight's 11pm deadline; although moves to Rennes in France and Majorca in Spain have been mooted in recent days (L'Equipe suggest that a deal with the former has already been struck), fellow Premier League outfit West Bromwich Albion have also been linked with a possible loan move for the French international this morning.

Modibo Maiga, who is currently part of the Mali squad at the African Cup of Nations looks unlikely to return to France after a loan move to Bordeaux fell through as West Ham are unwilling to fund part of his wages. The Ligue 1 club wanted to take the former Sochaux striker on loan for the rest of the season.

United are one of three clubs being linked with an eleventh-hour move for Valenciennes centre half Nicolas Isimat-Mirin. The 21-year-old looked set to remain in France for the rest of the current campaign but it is rumoured that his club are hoping to cash in on him now.

And finally, there have been no developments with the situation regarding Momo Diame. The midfielder now looks set to remain at the Boleyn Ground until the summer, at least.

We'll have more for you as it happens throughout the day.

''It's utterly disappointing that we never secured anyone else in the January transfer. From the start of the season we all knew Jussi wasn't solid in goal. He needed to be replaced even by an ageing Paul Robinson who I thought could do a good job.

We're in for a scrap!''

''I'm so happy Diame has stayed, he looks the only one in midfield up for the fight going on his performances so far.

However the lack of anyone coming to bolster the full back positions is a big worry for me. I have no great confidence in Demel and BFS seems reluctant to give Spence a run. This wouldn't be too much of a concern if we could score.

At present the 4-5-1 isn't working and Sam looks like he thinks plan B is that bloke off his kid's iPod. Maifa can't get a run in the side and I fear Paulista may get the same treatment. Lets hope his scoring debut will prompt Sam to throw him in and give him a run.''
