DiCanio's Hammer dream to come true

Acroding to, West Ham have successfully named club legend Paulo di Canio as the new manager of West Ham. Youth Manager Tony Carr will follow as assistant.

Di Canio writes transfer list.

New West Ham manager Paulo di Canio will attempt at least four decent signings befoe the start of the 2010-11 campaign. Demba Ba could be tempted to quit German club Hoiffenhain.
Free Agent Bernard Mendy could be on his way to backup Lars Jacobson, along with Daniel Sturridge on loan from Chelsea, but nothing is definate. If Sturridge's loan is failed the Hammers could be tempted to loan Federico Macheda from Man Utd. Daniel Gabbidon should leave along with 80,000 a week earner Kieron Dyer. Manuel da Costa and Luis Boa Morte could be forced to leave to gain more first team experience. Along the youth likes of Freddie Sears, Zavon Hines, Jordan Spence, Olly Lee, and possibly James Tomkins and Juilen Faubert could be loaned, Aston Villa, Birmingham, Bolton and Stoke among favourites to sign them.
