Moyes confirms summer transfer kity amount

David Moyes has hinted he knows what he has to spend this summer and it appears to close to the £50m budget  Claret and Hugh revealed last week.

The manager told reporters that he has got an idea of what sort of cash will be available from conversations with the owners saying it doesn’t change based on the final position the Hammers finish this season.

Asked directly about Tammy Abrahams at £45m, Moyes said it would rule us out completely at that valuation adding ‘We don’t have that money, we don’t have that to buy a striker at that price No.”

Asked whether £45m could represent his whole summer transfer budget Moyes replied “It may well be. But you never know here.  I don’t think we will be making a purchase of that for any one player. I’d be surprised if we were.”

Earlier this week Claret and Hugh revealed Moyes will be handed a £50m budget plus the proceeds of any outbound sales he makes.

  1. Don’t think 50m is anywhere near enough especially if we get Europa or champions league.

    • Exactly. I shudder to think how our squad would cope with a CL campaign. At least it would be over by Christmas!
      We need 20-30m just to sign Lingard. That leaves 20-30m to fill the gaps and deepen the squad for a CL campaign? Nowhere near enough.
      I’d be inclined to keep the likes of Lanzini, Anderson, Yarmolenko etc around, purely to have bodies to throw in the CL starting 11. This will manage the load on our PL first teamers. The return we’d get for selling them wouldn’t be enough to buy one decent player.

  2. For once, we’re not boasting of a kitty and then getting quoted extortionate prices as a result. Tammy’s not a Moyes player anyway – that’s a smokescreen. We are far more likely to go for Armstrong and Hlozek, who will fit into his system.

  3. Hope you’re right and we are keeping quiet, hlozek and Armstrong would be solid signings.
