Hammers have firm bid for another player

West Ham manager David Moyes has admitted the club have a firm bid in for another player in addition to Tomas Soucek.

The Gaffer told reporters at  Rush Green this afternoon “We have a firm bid in for another player”

The only hint Moyes would say is “It’s not a striker.”

Knowing that Moyes was looking for a central midfielder, right back and a striker it leaves the deduction that the mystery bid should be a right back. The central midfielder role seems to be on the verge of being fulfiled by Tomas Soucek in the next twenty-four hours.

The club are said to be interested in a number of right-backs across Europe and one in England.

Earlier today the Independent reported that ‘West Ham have registered an interest in RB Salzburg’s Rasmus Kristensen as the club widens its search for a right-back before the transfer window closes on Friday.’

  1. It seems that something has finally galvanised the board into buying some long required new players, but what I do not understand is why they have left it so late everybody knew from last year that these players were urgently needed so why were they not brought in in the first week of January so they could have helped the team before they fell into the relegation zone, now it will be very hard to get the new players to fit in while being in a relegation dogfight. It seems nothing is simple at West Ham.

    • Probably because at start of January they thought getting relegated was about a 30% chance now it’s more like 80% plus fan unrest has woke them up ,hopefully it’s not too late

    • At last it’s good to see David Sullivan has finally woken up from his coma & realise that we are in big trouble in the premier League & David Moyes is finally getting Tomas Soucek from Slavia Prague & Ramus Christiansen from RB Salzburg a right back apparently! What took him so long eh? ****!

  2. About time SGB woke up believe its too late, we need to win the Brighton game it’s a must. The sooner SGB go the better the club will be in all aspects. Moyes said they were a better squad of players since he returned , I don’t think so he is kidding not my kind of manager negative.

  3. I guess it was because Moyes was just appointed he wanted to run the rule over the players and of course wanted a say on who to bring in and who to go. That’s football never again shall we try and be a Man City who can throw £millions on wasted players the big game mentality. That’s not the WestHam way and I hope it will never be. We have learnt the lesson the hard way let’s hope that’s it’s not to late and we don’t drop through the trap door.

  4. The writing was on the wall in November ( or even earlier) but the owners refused to read it.
