Exclusive: Harewood hails West Ham’s recruitment

In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Marlon Harewood, who scored 54 goals for West Ham, was full of praise for the Hammers’ recruitment over the last few seasons.

In the last 12 months, West Ham have brought in players such as Craig Dawson, Vladimir Coufal, Tomas Soucek and Jesse Lingard, who have all been mainstays in David Moyes’ side during their push for the top four.

Should Declan Rice leave West Ham?

Yes, he's too good for them!

No, he's not ready to leave!

Despite not playing a single minute of Premier League football this season before January, the Hammers signed Lingard on loan when many clubs were put off, however, their scouting and judgement has paid off massively with the midfielder scoring nine goals in just 11 games.

Speaking on how West Ham have recruited smartly over the last few seasons and what he hopes for the future of the Irons, Harewood told FFC:

The recruitment of West Ham over the last couple of years has been absolutely fantastic. Obviously, they’ve signed some of the best players of the season in Tomas Soucek and Coufal who have been unbelievable signings.

“Hopefully the recruitment will continue to do the same sort of thing to sign players who can complement others such as Declan Rice.”

Who did West Ham lose their first league game of the season against?

West Ham may have a fight on their hands to keep hold of their top players such as Declan Rice and Soucek who have both been linked with moves away this summer.

David Moyes has previously admitted that the club will have to listen to offers for their midfield duo this summer, even if they manage to qualify for the Champions League.
