West Ham chief Gianluca Nani has assured fans there will be no January fire sale.
Manager Gianfranco Zola has been told he must sell before he can buy in January. But Nani, 46, who was appointed earlier this year to oversee transfer policy, insists he is ready to bring in strong replacements and aims to copy the success of Arsenal and Ajax in recruiting young talent.
He said: "They sell players, but they are always able to replace.
"We want to build that sort of organisation."
