West Ham United’s owners have no plans to sanction a handful of signings in the January transfer window, according to the London Evening Standard.
The Hammers have had a terrible start to the Premier League season, so naturally questions are being asked.
Manuel Pellegrini was appointed in the summer as a replacement for David Moyes, but he is yet to experience a league win.
In fact, West Ham are the only club in the division to have lost all four opening matches.
The results have been made even more disappointing by the fact that the club splashed around £100m on nine new signings in the summer.
Despite the lacklustre efforts on the pitch, the London Evening Standard claims that the board have no intention of bringing in a raft of new players when the transfer window reopens in January.
Signing new players tends to be the answer to making strides on the pitch, but it could have the opposite effect on West Ham.
It is clear that some of the club’s fresh arrivals have not settled in the team.
With that in mind, bringing in more new faces will only inflate the squad and potentially make life tougher.
Pellegrini recruited his summer signings for a reason, and it is his responsibility to get them playing.
It is also worth mentioning that West Ham could end up turning things around by January and the idea of hunting down fresh talent will be pointless.
If they fail to do so, the board are completely fair to hold back on signing new players unless absolutely necessary.
