West Ham complete January loan deal

West Ham have finally added another striker to their ranks, after completing the signing of Roma forward Marco Borriello on loan until the end of the season, reports the Daily Mirror.

Sam Allardyce have previously confirmed the arrival of another Italian in the form of AC Milan midfielder Antonio Nocerino on Saturday afternoon, and later finalized the move for Borriello.

The Hammers have been linked with a host of strikers over the past few months, with Allardyce making no secret of his desire to add back up for Andy Carroll.

Allardyce thought he had landed Lacina Traore on loan from Monaco, until Everton hijacked the move at the eleventh hour.

Meanwhile, West Brom are believed to have enquired the availability of Ishak Belfodil of Inter Milan, another player believed to be a Hammers target.

Allardyce had previously launched a £2.2million bid for Osasuna midfielder Raoul Loe, but the arrival of Nocerino could scupper the deal for the Cameroon international.

The Hammers are hoping to do more business before Friday’s deadline, with reports today linking the club with a loan move for banned Southampton forward Dani Osvaldo.
