Cape Town - West Ham have been a club heavily involved in the transfer window but look to have secured a number of quality signings this summer.

West Ham United's transfers rated: 7/10

Stewart Downing's departure was somewhat of a surprise but the Hammers did well in the latest transfer window.

Transfer summary:

In: Pedro Obiang (Sampdoria £4.4m), Stephen Hendrie (Hamilton, £1m), Darren Randolph (Birmingham City, free), Dimitri Payet (Marseille, undisclosed), Angelo Ogbonna (£10m, Juventus), Carl Jenkinson (Arsenal, loan), Manuel Lanzini (Al Jazira, loan), Alex Song (Barcelona, free), Victor Moses (Chelsea, loan), George Dobson (Arsenal, undisclosed), Nikica Jelavic (Hull City, undisclosed), Michail Antonio (Nottingham Forest, undisclosed)

Out: Carlton Cole (released), Jussi Jaaskelainen (released), Guy Demel (released), Nene (released), Dan Potts (Luton Town, free), Stewart Downing (Middlesbrough, £5.5m), Jussi Jaaskelainen (Wigan, free), Modibo Maiga (Al Nassr, undisclosed), Diego Poyet (MK Dons, loan), Reece Burke (Bradford City, loan), Kevin Nolan (released), Matt Jarvis (Norwich, loan)

Best bit of business: Manuel Lanzini looks to be class but the additions of Song, Jenkinson and Moses will go along way to ensuring the Hammers stay up this season.

Worst bit of business: The Hammers did a lot of work on deadline day but failed to get a deal for Emmanuel Adebayor done in time.
