No more key West Ham United players will be leaving the club this summer, Hugh and Claret are claiming.

The reputable site that appears to know everything when it comes to the Hammers, have stated that the departure of Cheikhou Kouyate will be the last one that the club will allow to happen unless fringe players attract any offers.

The Senegal international midfielder completed a move to London rivals Crystal Palace earlier in the week and it was believed that Pedro Obiang could have followed him shortly after.

However, that now appears to be far from the case, with the club having no intention of letting anyone else in the first-team leave.

It is understood West Ham have told the midfielder that they would not be able to let him rejoin Sampdoria, as they felt they would not have enough time to replace him.

The Hammers have spent big on their recruitment this summer and have landed a number of high-profile targets, which has surprised many within the football world.

The likes of Andriy Yarmolenko, Issa Diop and Felipe Anderson all joined in mega-money moves, whilst Jack Wilshere signed a deal to join West Ham on a free transfer after he decided to leave Arsenal.

Those signings will have shown the intent that new boss Manuel Pellegrini has of turning the club into a competitive force and will give them a great chance of achieving a position that will give them European football next year.

However, it also appears that the Chilean has a lot of trust in his current squad, as if he is not prepared to let anyone else leave this summer, then it could be assumed that everyone will have a role to play.
