Brady joins big two on January plans

karren-brady_2597986bWest Ham Vice Chairman Karren Brady has confirmed what ClaretandHugh has revealed way back – there are no plans to spend money in the upcoming January transfer window.

She has followed the big two of David Sullivan and David Gold in saying that that January looks a no go area for us.

Asked on BT Sport about the current injury crisis and whether West Ham will do any transfer business this winter Brady answered:

“January is never a great time for any club to buy players because of most of the really good players are not available for sale so we weren’t planning to do anything, whether something comes up that is very interesting and makes sense for the manager then we might consider it but (we have) no real plans”

Fair enough but the real reason was excluded – there’s no dough and we have reached the upper limit on our Financial Fair Play ceiling.

However, the departures of James Collins or Joey O’Brien would change that marginally and there may be room to manoeuvre¬†on loans but there is no chance of a major signing being made.

  1. Get Lanzini deal done
    Look for a great not adequate right back ( send a scout to Leeds )
    Let JOB go and maybe Ginge and cut the wages and give Oxford and Page a chance

  2. Transfer deals in January rarely work out well with teams panic buying over other teams cast offs . We have enough quality to get us by until we start getting the injured players back
    and i just hope we don’t lose any more that way . For what my opinion is worth i wouldn’t sell Ginge or anybody else in January as i doubt we could get better players in unless we pay way over the top , and the money simply isn’t there . COYI
