West Ham assistant manager Steve Clarke has revealed the club would like to sign one more player before the transfer window closes on Monday.
The Hammers have already acquired record signing Savio and loan arrival Radoslav Kovac in January, and Clarke is hoping to see one more new face.
Clarke is keen to add to Savio and Kovac as the Upton Park outfit look to build on a run of six games unbeaten in the Premier League.
The Scot told Sky Sports: "Maybe if we can get one more in before the close that would be better. If it doesn't happen then we are happy with what we have got."
But Gianfranco Zola's right-hand man is also keen to see deadline day to ensure that West Ham - who have already sold Matthew Etherington, Craig Bellamy and Hayden Mullins - keep hold of their players.
Speculation had suggested that the Hammers, who have also loaned out Nigel Quashie, Joe Widdowson, Lee Bowyer and Kyel Reid, were set to see a number of assets leave as owner Bjorgolfur Gudmundsson looks to raise funds.
And, for that reason, Clarke is willing on 5pm on 2nd February, adding: "It is getting closer and the quicker it gets to Monday evening the better."
