What is Silva’s record at West Ham?

Silva has only featured for West Ham’s first-team on two occasions, with just one of those appearances coming in the Premier League.

He has shown his class for the youth team, though. In 13 matches for West Ham Under-23s, he has scored 10 goals and provided two assists, highlighting how the 24-year-old is undoubtedly talented.

What other business have West Ham done on Deadline Day?

Silva looks set to depart West Ham tonight but the Irons have arguably made more headlines today for the players that they have brought into the club.

They have added Nikola Vlasic to their ranks, with the 23-year-old signing on a five-year deal, while midfielder Alex Kral has joined from Spartak Moscow on a season-long loan.

It has certainly been a busy final day of the transfer window at the London Stadium.
