West Ham United are unlikely to have a busy January transfer window after manager Slaven Bilic insisted his squad is already equipped to improve their current Premier League standing.

After finishing the 2015-16 season in seventh place, the Hammers have endured a woeful start to the new season and currently sit just six points off the foot of the Premier League table.

11 new players arrived at the club during the summer transfer window but it has been last season's stars Michail Antonio and Dimitri Payet providing the few moments of inspiration for West Ham this season.

Summer signings Andre Ayew and Sofiane Feghouli have seen their campaigns disrupted by injury, while the likes of Simone Zaza and Jonathan Calleri are yet to make the desired impact. Strikers Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll are yet to play in the league this season due to injury.

Bilic insists the club will not rush out to make further additions to their squad however. While one or two new faces could be considered, the Croatian insists he has faith in the squad he has already assembled.

"I definitely think, and I know, we have solutions in the squad. We have some players who were absent for a long time," he told a press conference on Thursday. "Now they are coming back and they are going to be our new signings so we are not thinking about the transfer window solving all our problems.

"Of course every club will look at one or two players, but not on that scale. The transfer window is far away, we are talking about football, I am completely concentrated on the players we have, and the players who will come back."

West Ham's injury woes have shown signs of relenting in recent weeks. Sakho could make his first appearance of the season against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening with Carroll also set to return to training next week.
