Fancy dan players will only be heading one way as far as West Ham are concerned this season and it won’t be in!
They do not fit the Moyes agenda as demonstrated by the absence of Felipe Anderson and a sadly out of form Manu Lanzini season from his plans of late.
We have learned that both will be allowed to leave, along with other fringe players and replaced by high energy athletes who can provide the athleticism and determination he requires.
Moyes’ scouting trips to The Valley and Loftus Road over recent days tells its own story and our source told us by phone: “We need to bring in some fresh faces. It’s all in the manager’s hands”
Fabian Balbuena will also be allowed to move on and these three alone in a flat market will allow the manager the finds required to start his West Ham rebuilding project.
And that means that the manager is looking hard for another central defender given he will be left with just Issa Diop and Angelo Ogbonna.
A new striker is required but at right back Ryan Fredericks is likely to be retained although Ben Johnson is now being seen as the potential number one. On the other side of the back four Aaron Cresswell can expect competition from a new addition.
