New West Ham United boss Manuel Pellegrini suggests that he will try to sign up to five new players during the summer transfer window.

New West Ham United boss Manuel Pellegrini has suggested that he will not make wholesale changes to the club's first-team squad.

On Tuesday morning, West Ham confirmed that Pellegrini had agreed to pen a three-year deal to replace David Moyes in the dugout at the London Stadium.

The Hammers are expected to be active in the transfer market this summer, but Pellegrini has hinted that he will limit the changes to "four or five" players.

Pellegrini told the club's official website: "I think West Ham has a very good team. I know all of the players and I saw most of the games that they played last season.

"So I am sure that, with the players we have in this moment in the squad, and bringing maybe another four or five players in, we are going to have a strong team.

"I think that West Ham had a difficult season last season and I hope that next season we are going to play football that will delight the fans."

Pellegrini has also revealed that he has been made to 'feel wanted' at the club by co-owner David Sullivan.
