Avram Grants hopes that the loan signing of Robbie Keane will save his season

Even though the country is currently suffering an economic down turn the major players in the Premier League yesterday spent money like they were taking part in the movie Brewster's Millions. There was over £200 million spent on transfers with several records being broken which started with the £35 million signing of Andy Carroll from Newcastle to Liverpool and the astonishing £50 million transfer of Fernando Torres from Liverpool to Chelsea. However at the bottom end of the table West Ham have not managed to break any transfer records but have secured a loan deal with Spurs to take striker Robbie Keane on loan until the end of season.

As well as Keane West Ham have also secured the services of Wayne Bridge, Gary O'Neil and Demba Ba during the January transfer window. West Ham manager Avram Grant will be hoping that the impressive loan signing of Robbie Keane will be enough to help pull the Hammers Hammersout of the relegation zone and into relative safety. The player can definitely score goals as proved during his recent loan signing with Celtic when he scored 12 goals in 16 games and he scored 202 goals in his career which began in 1995 with Wolves. Keane should make his debut for West Ham in their midweek clash against Blackpool.

The signing of Keane and others however has not yet affected Grants odds in the next Premier League manager to be sacked betting market as he is still the favourite manager to be ousted from his position, but with the West Ham board now fully behind him and these new signings after a few games this may well change.
