West Ham United skipper Kevin Nolan believes that there could be two new faces arriving at Upton Park before the end of the transfer window.

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce has already completed three deals so far this summer as striker Andy Carroll arrived from Liverpool, while defender Ravzan Rat signed on a free from Shakhtar Donetsk and goalkeeper Adrian from Real Betis.

The east London club are working hard to sign another striker to play alongside Carroll, but Nolan believes there could be new two signings before the end of the month.

"The gaffer has said he wants one more although it wouldn't surprise me if we sign a couple of players before the deadline, especially if someone decent becomes available late in the day," Nolan told the Evening Standard.

"We have a good, settled squad but he will be looking to add more quality when he can. Big Sam isn't someone who will get a player in just for then sake of it."

Nolan also believes that there could be a big part to play in the first team next season for former Manchester United youngster Ravel Morrison who has impressed during pre-season.

The midfielder, who spent last season on-loan at Birmingham City, scored two goals in the 3-2 win over Sporting Lisbon earlier this week and Nolan believes he can be a major player for West Ham next season.

"It has also been a real bonus that Ravel Morrison is back with us and looking a very different character from the one who went to Birmingham on loan," added Nolan.

"It appears as though he has grown up on and off the field, he's scored goals in pre-season and I am sure that if he can get everything right now he can go on and have a very successful career.

"I will be helping him as much as I can and, hopefully, he can be a real positive, breaking into the team and getting games under his belt.
