Hammers spend £66.5m on player transfers

payetThe release of West Ham’s financial accounts earlier this week has laid bare the huge investments the Hammers board have made in the last 17 months.  Figures in the official accounts reveal that a total of £66.5m has been spent on purchasing players registrations and loan fees.

£32.5m was invested to bring in Mauro Zarate, Enner Valencia, Aaron Cresswell, Cheikou Kouyate, Diafra Sakho, Diego Poyet, Morgan Amalfitano, Carl Jenkinson and Alex Song.

Over the recent summer transfer window the Hammers invested an additional £42m bringing in Pedro Obiang, Dimtrio Payet, Angelo, Ogbonna, Michail Antonio, Nikica Jelavic, Stephen Hendrie and Darren Randolph. Carl Jenkinson, Manual Lanzini, Victor Moses and Alex Song also joined on loan attracting significant loan fees.

A further £8.8m could be due depending on player and club success on the field which could take the transfer cost of these players to over £75m.

A total £23.5m of this £66.5m is still owed to other clubs as some of the transfers are paid in installments over the next 24 months.

  1. Watching the 2 Daves and all westham fans celebrating it was worth every penny,
    At least when we sell now the players will be worth money unlike the others we invested in
    We have either had to pay them off,give them away or got stuck with them,
    Now we have valuable stock in human trafficking
