Martin Glover, head of recruitment at West Ham

Martin Glover is head of recruitment at West Ham. Together with Sam Allardyce he drew up a list of ten men they wanted in the summer. This included Michu who eventually ended up Swansea. Allardyce blames Glover for not saying: "You must sign this player." They eventually decided on targeting six playerss. The only one on the list that West Ham signed was Mohamed Diame.

Allardyce has signed Winston Paulista on loan. He has been playing in Brazil and Allardyce rarely buys players without Premier League experience.

It is rather disturbing to hear that West Ham are not willing to offer Carlton Cole a new deal at the moment. His contract comes to an end in the summer. Allardyce is clearly taking advantage of Cole's comments that he really wants to stay at the club.
