Carvalho looking to January window

Filed: Friday, 1st September 2017

William Carvalho is reportedly disappointed that he was unable to complete a move to West Ham during the summer transfer window.

The Sporting midfielder was linked with a 35million switch to West Ham during the final few weeks of the window, but a deal failed to materialise.

Portuguese daily A Bola claim that whilst disappointed, Carvalho - who was also closely linked with Ligue 1 outfit Monaco - will try to find a new club in January instead, when the next window opens.

Since the deadline passed last night, at least one source has suggested the transfer failed after the plug was pulled by co-chairman David Sullivan due to doubts over the vast fee involved.

Sporting were holding out for circa 40million for the defensive midfielder - which would have been almost double the record transfer fee paid to Stoke for Marko Arnautovic in June.
