Sam on new signings

Sam Allardyce has revealed that he expects to conclude the capture of Genoa striker Ze Eduardo ahead of tomorrow night's trip to Ipswich Town.

Allardyce - who has a fully fit squad to choose from with the sole exception of Papa Bouba Diop who is still recovering from a thigh strain for the transfer-deadline day clash - told reporters that the 24-year-old Brazilian should be confirmed as his third signing of the transfer window imminently.

"He [Ze Eduardo] is here, he's flown in from Italy and arrived this morning. We'll go through the normal procedure as we do with everybody in terms of whether we sign him on a short or long term [deal] and making sure they're absolutely 100 per cent fit to join us," said Allardyce, who also confirmed KUMB.com's earlier story that stated West Ham had pulled out of the race to sign Rangers front man Nikica Jelavic.

Another player who the Hammers look like missing out on is Barnsley winger Ricardo Vaz Te, who was the subject of a 'derisory' offer according to Tykes boss Keith Hill.

"Vaz Te is out of contract in the summer when he can sign for who he likes for nothing," retorted Allardyce. "Our bid is giving them a 100 per cent profit."

''Thankfully, he is on loan. So if he is pants he'll just end up going back to Genoa. Looking at his stats, he has only played four games and failed to score in any of them. It doesn't look great does it?''

''This guy is rubbish, he should not be allowed anywhere near The Boleyn. Brazilians who know him say he is abysmal and couldn't score in an empty net. Why do we do this, I would much rather we kept our powder dry until the summer than sign this guy.''
