One is a young, largely unknown French striker, while the other is a seasoned Premier League forward who has just joined his third top flight club. Jelavic joins the Hammers from relegated Hull and will be looking to beef up a West Ham forward line that has issues running on not as the case may be through it with Valencia injured, Carroll lacking match fitness and Sakho in and out of the slammer. He must now be wondering what is going on after his old team just splashed more than that on year-old Martial. Already noted by some in France to have struggled against the physicality of strong defenders, it could well take him a while to get used to the Premiership.
Watch: January's transfer window debate 03 Feb Darren Fletcher. A transfer involving Darren Fletcher is one of the most exciting things to happen today. That tells you plenty. Thanks for your company, I'll talk to you again soon. Dream come true for me! Can't wait for the new challenge next season.
He's said that on Twitter, in fairness. He's not talking with " "s Our new No. Stay strong. Sorry, just can't. Manchester United make a late foray into the market to sign year-old Bolton Wanderers defender Andy Kellett, on loan What on earth is going on here, then?
If you're 21 and decent you're getting into a Championship side, not on loan from one and in League Two. Something about this smells like deeply suspicious, or like a gigantic administrative mistake. Thank goodness for that. Just 5, hours to go until the next transfer window closes!
I'm already quivering with excitement. Excitement or fear, hard to say.
He is, let's not forget, very good. I suppose that's probably about one half of a televised game against Burnley in the new money And, ideally Darren Fletcher holding up a West Brom scarf. Carlton Cole's move to the same club fell through on account of West Ham not securing a replacement, apparently.
Still Sky keeps cutting to him, making him say things, as he stands above astroturf pitches in his training ground purgatory.
No news, still. Let him go home, Sky! It's like he's been a naughty boy and has been put into a brutally lengthy detention. Same answer: Rangers never in for him or Lennon.
QPR might possibly get to do some ill-advised business after all We are trundling towards a deeply unsatisfactory conclusion.
This screengrab give you some idea: Is that as fun as a big purple sex toy and some boisterous youths? No it is not. More info in our Liverpool-only liveblog on the other side.
Maybe, just maybe It's time to go to bed. Thank you for all the kind messages. Oh, now he's not. Transfer deadline day drama in full. Aaron Lennon to Everton is sorted, the club just tweeted as much. And we have cheesy signing photo confirmation of Wilfried Zaha, back permanently to Crystal Palace on a deal that will keep him at the club until , by which time he will be playing his home games on the moon: I am confident we'll have Aaron Lennon to Everton wrapped up before bedtime.
David Gold seems pretty certain something's going to happen at West Ham, maybe Adebayor after all? Anything else would be quite surprising as this stage. I am whelmed.
I hope you are too. It's from Harry Ford: Fairly certain that on my way home from Morrissons, my Bristol University mates and I saw a depressed and disillusioned Angel di Maria in a neon pink Lamborghini heading towards the Bristol City training ground after an extremely disappointing first few months at Old Trafford.
Stranger things have happened But have they, Harry?
Have they really? But please notify Laurence Mitchell from either way, who will be furious about being beaten to this West Country scoop.
Here's your song, which will eat up a good portion of that hour: Harry Redknapp was hoping to bring the year-old winger to Loftus Road, having struck an agreement with the Hammers which would see Mauro Zarate's loan to the west London club brought to a premature end.
Here's a time-lapse map showing how many people are tweeting about it around the world. It's a bit terrifying: Here's your friend and mine Laurence Mitchell with more scurrilous and entirely made-up gossip Thom, I was in contact with your colleague Alan earlier and bizarre as it may seem, there may be not one but TWO shock transfers on the cards in the West Country today.
I was having a few pintos with the chaps, when who should we see but Titus Bramble, necking pitchers in preparation for a monster night out - curiously timed trip to the West Country or shock move to Bristol City? Let's assess him via the medium of generic YouTube highlights video: Say what you like about Filip, he's alright at running through really dreadful defences.
Not Villa, not back to Southampton, not out of his house. Here's your song. They've got a Robert Huth. That's more than enough West Ham might be thrown out of the FA Cup! So says Jeremy Wilson: West Ham United are facing the threat of being thrown out of the FA Cup after Fifa announced that it was taking disciplinary action for a "potential violation" of rules over Diafra Sakho's participation in the win against Bristol City.
In a development that could have huge ramifications for this year's FA Cup, Fifa are investigating Senegal's complaint after Sakho played and scored the winner in West Ham's fourth round match despite being unavailable for the African Cup of Nations. Sakho did not travel to Equatorial Guinea for the tournament due to a back injury that, according to West Ham, prevented him from flying.
Unless there is prior agreement with the national association, Fifa rules state that players cannot appear for their clubs during the period they should have been released. Read the rest right here.
