Sam Allardyce admits that he is hoping to add to his West Ham United squad during the January transfer window.

The Hammers dropped down to 17th place in the Premier League table after suffering a comprehensive 3-0 defeat by Chelsea at Upton Park on Saturday.

With striker Andy Carroll still sidelined, Allardyce says that bolstering his attacking options must be a priority in the new year.

Asked if he would like to add to his squad, Allardyce replied: “The way we’re going at the moment, the answer is yes but we will be better with Winston Reid and Andy Carroll back.

“If you can strengthen particularly on the front line, we would like to but we can’t do that until January, and January is a long way off with the amount of games we’ve got in December.

“We’ve got six games in December as well as next week so we’ve got a lot of points at stake that we must try and get.

“The big time for me is Fulham here then Crystal Palace away, so that’s got to be four points minimum.”
