Ryan Nelsen believes West Ham have issued a statement of intent by tying Winston Reid to a new deal.
Tottenham are keen for striker Shaquile Coulthirst to continue his development out on loan after his spell at Southend.
Stephen McGinn has signed a new one-year deal at Watford.
The Hornets have the option of a further 12 months should the midfielder impress.
McGinn is only recently back from a cruciate knee ligament injury which kept him on the sidelines for 16 months and has yet to play a competitive game.
