West Ham continue to be linked with a number of players with the transfer deadline just hours away.
All summer dealings must be concluded by 6pm today - and as a result, a number of clubs are still desperately trying to finalise deals. United still have their finger in a number of tasty pies - although much may depend on who leaves the club first.
Everton striker Yakubu remains very much on the radar although any deal is almost certainly dependent on someone moving elsewhere.
The most likely departure would appear to be Carlton Cole - however weekend rumours suggesting that Liverpool were interested in the 26-year-old were exaggerated, although the Reds are keeping tabs on the England striker's situation and could move should other deals not progress as planned.
With Rob Green sidelined for around a fortnight as a result of a minor hip operation United remain keen to bring in a recognised back up, with Roma's Brazilian 'keeper Doni the club's main target. There would be no work permit issue should the deal be concluded as the 30-year-old holds an Italian passport.
Other possibilities for deadline day moves include Everton's Joseph Yobo whilst the Hammers remain keen on SV Hamburg's Ivorian international Guy Demel, although nothing has changed on that potential deal since the weekend.
