Hammers may have to dig up money



West Ham will have to dig up money from somewhere if they are to get anywhere near fulfilling the Moyes/Steidten wish list in the winter window.

Club insiders have been telling Claret and Hugh there is no money available for signings in January despite a left back, central defender and striker being required.

The club would love to be able to add to their summer reinforcement but that may have to wait until next summer to do so.

The arrival of Mohammed Kudus, Edson Alvarez and James Ward-Prowse has seen the Hammers mount a massive improvement on last season’s Premier League form.

And there remain worries over Antonio who at 33 finds it tougher to recover from injury problems so were the club to be able to move on any position it would probably be up front.

They will hope that clubs may come in for any of our players who are available for sale to make such a move possible.

    do we use ALL of the 130 million TV rights cash just to cover salaries now?
