David Moyes repeats transfer challenge message

West Ham manager David Moyes has repeated his message that he won’t sign players for the sake of it or just to make up the numbers adding they need to be good for the club and make a difference and feature in the first team.

Speaking to reporters at Rush Green this afternoon ahead the FA Cup clash with West Brom on Saturday the manager said  “[We are] Not going to do anything that isn’t good for the club, we could do with adding but people who will help, not just another number.”

“I want someone who can make a difference and feature in the team. If we’re not bringing that in then it needs to be young players for the long-term. A balance is not that easy.”

The manager has previously complained about the difficulty of bringing players of quality in January and says he does not want other teams cast offs that they want to get rid off.

Sullivan and Moyes are also thought to be facing a challenge in persuading players to join a relegation dog fight with the possibility of a 50% drop in wages should the Hammers find themselves in the Championship next season.

  1. I agree only sign if it is a player that will benefit us both short and long term. Otherwise loan signing to fill a gap. I still believe in our position we need to have the cop on if there is a good 22 year old out there and we have to pay 2-3m over the odds to sign him now this is still the right thing to do as the cost of relegation will be a lot worse including writing off millions on players like Anderson, Rice etc.

  2. A disaster of their own making and completely avoidable, disgusted. I will go as far as saying there will be no more additions and I wish I could be positive about our survival chances but that is getting increasingly difficult to be, especially with the next 4 games.

  3. Absolutely agree with Moyes. Trouble is every January signing is a cast off unless they are one for the future maybe on loan. And if they are a decent player the Club that owns them and more specifically the players agent will not want their player to be associated with a team that could even possibly get relegated. Damages their players brand and value.

  5. Just have to agree with Moyes on this. This is the strategy we have all been crying out for. SSN reporting that we have bid 10million for Cash from Forest.

    • And it’s already been rejected, because Forest have rejected 15m from Milan for him – why would they accept 10m from us? Great transfer strategy this!

  6. All well and good agreeing with the Manager, but what about the Relegation Fight? He bleats on about not taking someone on, unless they would take us forward. But what the hell good is that if we go down ? I would settle for a thirty something who could score regularly and keep us up. We can worry about Development and Progress later.

    Besides we are sitting with players we bought in the Summer or last year who have not had a game yet. If they are no good, get rid and buy someone else. But BUY, those who will keep us up and stop making damn stupid excuses. Leicester it was pointed out the other day have bought class players in the WInter Transfer market in the recent past, why can’t we? Spend money. It is a rude word at West Ham, but do it.

  7. Hugh did James Maddison join Leicester from Norwich in January.?A question not a criticism.
