And that's a wrap

Stephen Henderson has re-joined Ipswich Town on loan - thereby concluding West Ham United's winter transfer window business.

The former Portsmouth goalkeeper has returned to Portman Road on loan for the remainder of the season, leaving 20-year-old Raphael Spiegel as the club's back-up to current number one Jussi Jaaskelainen.

Sam Allardyce signed four new players in total during January including former fans' favourite Joe Cole, but failed to land the left back he had been seeking or a goalkeeper to challenge Jaaskelainen, whose form has dipped alarmingly in recent weeks.

The Hammers boss chased several full-backs during January including Blackburn's Martin Olsson, Juve's Reto Ziegler and Aston Villa's Stephen Warnock - and was strongly linked with a move for Olsson's team mate at Ewood Park, Paul Robinson - but was left frustrated having failed to land any of them.

However both Allardyce and the club's supporters will no doubt be heartened by the news that influential midfielder Momo Diame remains at the club, despite being strongly tipped to leave ahead of last night's transfer deadline.

''Heartened by the fact Mo Diame is at the club? But they can't reach an agreement over new contract so he may refuse to play making him a liability.''
