West Ham boss Zola will only sell fringe players

Whilst admitting the club will sell during the transfer window, West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola is adamant only fringe players will be considered. "When we have all the players back fit we will have to make some decisions," conceded the Italian.

"For me, it's not worth having 26 or 24 players and having some players only training and not playing. It's not good for them or for us.

"So yes, we will probably be selling some players but we'll decide only when I have the full squad training and then I can make my decision."

"We will not be selling our best players. The players who are not playing here regularly we will give them the possibility of playing a little bit more or going somewhere else. But we won't be selling our best players," insisted Zola.

"The club intends to keep and to sign good players who we think have a good future at the club."
