David Gold has confirmed that he expects West Ham to annunce some further signings shortly.
The 74-year-old co-chairman told his followers on Twitter that despite no news on the transfer front since the confirmation of Kevin Nolan's arrival, hard work continues behind the scenes.
"Many of you are asking about signings," Gold said, "but please bear with us as we obviously can't reveal any details until a deal us virtually done. Negotiations for new signings are ongoing."
With the current squad back at Chadwell Heath later this week after their summer break, new boss Sam Allardyce will be keen to boost his options.
Since the end of last season West Ham have parted company with 13 first team squad members, with only two - Nolan and Abdoulaye Faye - coming the other way.

''Probably the best piece of news I've seen so far this summer is that Kieron Dyer is finally off the wage bill.''

''By my uneducated guess, that's about £400k PER WEEK saved in wages. Should let us get some decent replacements to get us out of the Championship.
£3million for Cole! Stoke you are having a laugh. I'm not his biggest fan but maybe he can shine in this league, he seems to have a desire to stay and fight, unlike Hitz. I thought he owed us at least a season after being injured so much.''

''Despite re-assurance what worries me is that Leicester, who are going to be a serious threat next season, are already bringing in players such as CMS and Kasper Schmeichel. Please get rid of remaining dead beats.''
