West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce doesn't believe the club will do anymore business in the January transfer window

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce says he doesn't believe the club will do anymore business in the January transfer window.
The Irons completed the double signing of Italian duo Antonio Nocerino and Marco Borriello at the weekend and have also brought Roger Johnson to Upton Park on loan.
The transfer window closes on Friday and Allardyce doesn't believe any more players will join the Hammers despite West Ham being linked with a move for Leeds striker Ross McCormack.
“Our two new signings take the number up to our 25 squad limit so unless anybody leaves in the next four days, I don’t see us doing anymore business,” Allardyce told the Evening Standard.
“We managed to find Antonio on the back of Michael Essien going to AC Milan from Chelsea.
“He is very excited about playing in the Premier League and he wants to get into the Italy squad for the World Cup finals.
"Marco hasn’t played that much in the last six weeks but he is a lively striker who can score goals which is what we need.”
