West Ham has signed Democratic Republic of Congo left-back Herita Ilunga on a 12-month loan deal.
The move, report say is subject to registration by the Premier League, with the club blaming the late announcement on administrative issues.
The club also signed Italian striker David di Michele along with Ilunga.
Di Michele, 32, is hoping to move from Torino while the 26-year-old Ilunga is set to join from Toulouse.
The Hammers are also in talks for Ghana midfielder Stephen Appiah.
The 27-year-old is available on a free transfer after negotiating an exit from Fenerbahce recently.
Ilunga made 136 appearances for St Etienne before moving to Toulouse in 2007.
He played 35 times in Ligue 1 last season and also played a part in Toulouse’s Uefa Cup run.
The pair join Valon Behrami and Jan Lastuvka as new signings brought in by manager Alan Curbishley during the summer transfer window.
