West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has been banned from making any 'permanent' signings during the January transfer window.

West Ham owners David Sullivan and David Gold yesterday backed their manager but a report in the Daily Star today reveals the owners are not willing to let 'Big Sam' make any permanent signings over the January window.

The owners will provide a cash injection for loan players, but not for any permanent deals.

The decision strikes a resemblance to the Hammers hierarchy’s reaction during Avram Grant’s reign at the club, a time that eventually saw the east London club relegated.

Wolves defender Roger Johnson is the first of a string of signings Allardyce wants to make, to try and keep the club afloat in the Premier League. New AS Monaco striker Lacina Traore is rumoured to be the next.

West Ham have struggled throughout the season with star striker Andy Carroll still not fit enough to play.

Johnny Heitinga and Asamoah Gyan have already allegedly turned down opportunities to move to Upton Park, and with the Hammers looking to be in a difficult situation might not be the last.

However, West Ham fans can take solace in the fact the board have committed themselves to Allardyce, a manager many consider to be the best option available to get them out of a relegation scrap.
