David Moyes believes he will be able to enhance his squad before next week's transfer window deadline - but was unable to offer supporters any guarantees.With the deadline just nine days away, West Ham - who were beaten 1-0 at Manchester United this afternoon - are yet to make a single signing during the current transfer window.
And while Moyes insists he is pulling out all the stops to bring in new faces, he admits no deals are close to being sealed.
"We'll try hard to make new signings but I cannot say one way or the other; we will see," he told the media following this afternoon's defeat at Old Trafford.
"We will work hard to add to what we have got, but I can't give any guarantees that will happen.
"We have been trying for a couple of years to add a striker to the group but we have not been able to. We have made quite a few offers for players at different times that have not been accepted or they've been too expensive.
"It is not for the want of trying and it's not like we're not seeing the same things that others are. We're trying to get in players that I think can help us and make a difference and we will continue trying to look. With a week or so to go, we will keep looking.
"I see January as a great opportunity to join West Ham because it is a club on the up and doing well," he continued.
"We are trying to show that we can be consistent. Last year qualifying for Europe was a great achievement so if we keep ourselves in and around those European spots, I still see it as a great achievement."
