Chamakh makes loan move

West Ham have completed a 6 month loan deal for Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh.


The 28-year-old Moroccan has struggled to make an impact since joining the Gunners from Bordeaux in May 2010 and hasn't featured in the league this season for the Gunners.

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce said "We've struck a deal with Arsenal, I'm glad to say but unfortunately our registration went through too late and they've refused to allow him to be available for selection tomorrow.

"I think that will be it in terms of strikers. We're due to get Andy Carroll back so we should be okay."
