West Ham looking for striker

West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan has confirmed the club are in the hunt for at least one new striker having lost Andy Carroll to injury.

We have to bring in another striker and we're working on it now to buy one, or loan one, or both.

You can never have enough strikers and really with Andy gone we haven't got enough. It was desperate last year... We probably made a mistake by putting all our eggs in one basket.

We can't start the season with the strikeforce we've got. I don't think it's good enough, there's not enough height in it and if we get another injury, in terms of quantity, it's insufficient, so we have to sign at least one more player.
