The Upton Park chief revealed he had back-ups if he did not land the winger, but now that he has he can’t forsee any more arrivals in the next week.

When asked if he expected to conduct any more business, Allardyce said: “Not at this moment in time. We had a couple of players lined up that were from abroad in case the Matt transfer didn’t come off.
