West Ham United: Board will make “some money available” for Moyes

ExWHUemployee has revealed that the West Ham United board will make ‘some money available’ for David Moyes to spend this January.

What’s the word?

With the winter transfer market now open, Premier League clubs are able to bring in new faces to help bolster their squads in the second half of the season.

Seeing as the Hammers are only above the relegation zone thanks to a superior goal difference, more than most they may well need to make a new signing or two this January.

However, it remains unclear as to how much money they will spend with past reporting suggesting that they may have to settle for loans or bargains instead of splashing the cash as they did in the summer.

While that may well be the case, it does sound as though they will at least have a little bit of money to spend.

Ex told The West Ham Way podcast (7:00): “In terms of players being brought in. Now I believe that the chairman has said to Moyes that we will make some money available.

“I don’t imagine it’ll be a great deal.”

Will David Moyes still be West Ham manager by February?

Quiet January ahead

The club certainly backed Moyes in the summer, spending well over £150m on new incomings. Seeing as that hasn’t helped the club’s league form, it’s easy to see why spending may be more frugal from now on.

On top of that, even if the board did want to spend big, they may be wary of buying players specifically for Moyes when the manager’s job at West Ham may not be his for much longer.

Of course, the Hammers have already signed young Brazilian defender Luizao from Sao Paulo, though he won’t be expected to make an impact in the first team any time soon.

However, it sounds as though there is a chance a more senior player could arrive this winter – though it seems unlikely that it will be a major deal costing a big fee.

Perhaps fans will have to hope for another bargain like Craig Dawson who initially joined on loan before later completing a permanent transfer.
