West Ham new signings: Confirmed ins and outs for January 2024

There have not been any West Ham new signings so far in the January transfer window, although there have been reports that they are close to signing Kalvin Phillips on loan from Manchester City for the rest of the season, while they have also been linked with some other interesting names. Instead, we have taken a look at the impact the main summer arrivals have made, and also touched on a couple of departures that have left the London Stadium this month.

West Ham have enjoyed a solid season so far, sitting in sixth in the Premier League table and through to the UEFA Europa League knockout stages. After the big departure of Declan Rice to Arsenal, they have seemingly spent that money well, and look set to have another successful campaign under David Moyes.

Mohammed Kudus – Ajax (£36.8m)

Kudus has proven to be an excellent signing for West Ham, despite the outlay. He has scored nine goals and made one assist in 24 appearances in total over all competitions for the Hammers, and is currently on Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) duty with Ghana.

Edson Alvarez – Ajax (£32.5m)

West Ham made a double swoop at Ajax with the signing of Alvarez, brought in to help fill the void that Rice left. He has certainly performed well, making 25 appearances in total over all competitions, and has even chipped in with one goal and two assists from a defensive midfield position.

James Ward-Prowse – Southampton (£29.8m)

The Hammers also produced some smart business by bringing in some Premier League experience in the form of Ward-Prowse. The set-piece specialist has not disappointed, with his penalty in the 2-2 draw at Sheffield United on Sunday afternoon the fourth goal he has scored in the division for them, while he has also produced an impressive 11 assists in all competitions.

Konstantinos Mavropanos – Stuttgart (£17.1m)

Mavropanos did have a spell in England before with Arsenal, but West Ham decided to sign him after his  impressive performances in the Bundesliga last season. This campaign, he has made 19 appearances in total over all competitions, and scored against his former club in an impressive 2-0 win at the Emirates Stadium for the Hammers in December.

Conor Coventry – Charlton (£1m)

West Ham decided to let Coventry go on a permanent deal to Charlton Athletic this month, after assessing that he was not going to be part of their long-term plans. He has since made two appearances for the League One outfit, after playing 10 games for the Hammers at senior level. However, the 23-year-old had not played at all this season, and so perhaps it was best for both parties to part ways.

Thilo Kehrer – Monaco (Loan)

Kehrer was allowed to join Monaco on loan in order to get more game time. He had made 12 appearances in total over all competitions for the Hammers, but only made four starts, with none coming in the Premier League. So far, he has started all of Monaco's last three games in all competitions, and so this looks to be a good move for all parties involved.
