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.
