Transfer latest: 27th July

Tal Ben Haim's postponed move to east London could be back on.

The Israeli international agreed terms with the Hammers, as we reported previously, only to fail a routine medical as a result of a persistent groin problem. However the Standard report that United are now looking to take the 28-year-old on loan from Portsmouth instead of offering Ben Haim a permanent deal, giving im the season to prove his long-term fitness.

Meanwhile little has changed with regard to Loic Remy's on/off move to West Ham, despite both clubs having reportedly agreed terms. The only hold up now appears to be as a result of the player's indecision - he has previously expressed a preference to join Liverpool ,from the teams currently linked with him.

As mentioned here, pacy winger Miralem Sulejmani is rumoured to be joining West Ham later this week along with a new assistant manager, Aeljko Petrovic. The two are well known to each other, having both emerged from the former Yugoslavia.

Another player expected to arrive at Chadwell Heath this week is Argentinian youngster Milton Caraglio. Like Ben Haim, the 21-year-old forward - who currently plays for Rosario Central in the Argentinian First Division has suffered his fair share of injury problems but is considered an extremely bright young talent, despite having barely played since sustaining a long-term knee injury last season. Proving his fitness could earn the player a move worth around £5million.

Oft-linked with a move to West Ham has been Chelsea's part-time right back Paulo Ferreira - and yet again the two names are being spoken together. Now 31, the Portuguese full-back made 20 appearances from the Blues last season to whom he is contracted until 2013. The Hammers are still looking to strengthen their defence, with others such as Lyon's out-of-contract 27-year-old Francois Clerc being mooted as a possible arrival.

Finally, Real Madrid legend Raul has revealed that his future lies in either Germany or England, having left the club where he spent the last 18 years. West Ham are yet to be linked with a move for the 33-year-old former Spanish international but given David Sullivan and David Gold's penchant for a 'marquee signing' don't be surprised to see that one crop up at some stage.

''Can't help feeling a little sad about all this apparent influx of foreign 'talent'; surely there must be British potential in our lower leagues, just waiting to be snapped-up?

And as for the continued talk about a move to the Olympic stadium... will there be anything of the traditional West Ham left in a few years time?''
