David Moyes spoke about transfers in a post-match interview saying he hoped Tomas Soucek could make an impact immediately hinting he could start on Saturday against Brighton.
Asked about new signings Moyes said “We’ve signed one, I’m hoping he is fresh and ready to go, why not. I need to see but I hope he can help us. I don’t want to put pressure on him, it’s not the easiest league in the world to make an impact straight away but I have a lot of confidence in him.”
Asked about the chances of signing a new striker before Friday the manager replied: “We’re looking really hard but there isn’t that many out there.”
Although he didn’t mention it the West Ham gaffer is also searching for a right-back after being forced to blood 19-year-old Jerry Ngakia with Pablo Zabaleta rested on the bench unable to play so many games in such as short period. Ryan Fredericks is due to return from injury sometime in February.
