Slavan Bilic has confirmed there is still some transfer business to be done at West Ham this summer, the Mirror has reported.

So far the Hammers have made nine signings including centre back Angelo Ogbonna from Juventus and attacking midfielder Dimitri Payet from Marseille, but manager Slavan Bilic is looking for several further additions.

Bilic said: "The transfer window is still open and there’s still some players that will come and some that will go."

Fenerbahce striker Moussa Sow is a £12 million target for the club according to the Express. He averages a goal every two games for the Turkish side. The Senegal international is also being eyed by Sunderland.

The Telegraph are reporting that Alex Song's proposed transfer to West Ham is being held up over a dispute over contract length. It is believed that the London club are offering a one-year-deal, though Song is attempting to hold out for a three-year-deal.

Should the club miss out on the signing of Song, United are contemplating a move for former Leicester midfielder Esteban Cambiasso after the 34-year-old rejected a contract offer by the midlands club earlier this month.

Bilic insisted that the club are yet to admit defeat in making Song part of his squad for the upcoming season: "We are in contact [with Song] but it's not for the media yet."

Tuesday saw the Hammers win 1-0 away at Norwich City thanks to a late own goal by Harry Toffolo. The friendly fixture was to make the anniversary of 80 years of football at Carrow Road.

West Ham kick-off the new season with a trip to the Emirates on August 9.
