West Ham boss Pellegrini: I'll work with Husillos to find right signings

West Ham United boss Manuel Pellegrini expects an exciting summer market.

Pellegrini has welcomed his former Malaga offside Mario Husillos as the Irons' new director of sport.

"I will work hard with the director of football to try to make a very strong squad," Pellegrini told the club website.

"Maybe a lot of people are thinking about defenders because last season West Ham had the worst defensive record in the league, so we must arrange that, but we must also have a balanced squad and not just a team.

"We have time over the next two months to see which better players we can bring here."
