Allardyce targets two West Ham signings in January

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce wants to bring in at least two players during the January transfer window to bolster their promotion push back to the Premier League. Allardyce said: "In an ideal world, I will bring in two new players this month - a forward and a defender - because we only have five subs and we have to rotate the squad. Two quality players would be great. Maybe we will go for a wide player as well."

He added: "We have already started the process of bidding but without any success at the moment, either permanent or loan deals.

"The co-owners Mr Sullivan and Mr Gold have pressed the button on a lot of potential deals already.

"I can't be more pleased with the way they have supported me. More goals is what we are after but we haven't managed to clinch one yet.

"I am optimistic for 2012. My hope is we can get the players in the squad fit and have a full squad to choose from.

"That would give me the opportunity to pick the best XI for each game rather than just who is available."
