Gentle Giant signs for Hammers?

The Guardian reports that Monaco's 6ft 8ins striker Lacina Traore has been granted a work permit so should be finalising his loan move to the Hammers. He looks like he can both dribble and shoot on his YouTube highlights - though with selective editing most of us could be made to look good on YouTube. As deputy for Radamel Falcao he can't be bad, so let's see what he can do. His nickname of 'the Gentle Giant' is a little worrying, but hopefully that just means he's a nice lad who won't get into trouble outside Sugar Hut. Meanwhile Modibo Maiga is reported to have turned down a loan move to QPR but will surely leave in the window now he's behind Carroll, Cole and Traore.
