Moyes reveals January plans

David Moyes has confirmed that he wants to add players to his West Ham squad this month but he has refused to reveal his targets.

The Irons are in the market for a new striker and a new centre-back in this window and he has now confirmed that there is a desire for him to get players through the door.

Moyes says that he has been promised backing by the Irons board and will be allowed to splash the cash provided he finds the right target.

Quoted by Football.London, the Hammers boss said: “Obviously, we are looking for players and we’d like to add to the squad if it’s possible.

“The board have made it clear that if I want to do it, and we can find the right players they will let it happen. So we’re looking yes.”

He was asked about the likes of Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard and Everton’s Lucas Digne, but has refused to comment on a particular player who is currently under contract with another club.

Moyes added: “I’d never give an opinion on any players at any other clubs because they are their players so you can ask me as many players as you like but my answer will be the same “I’m not going to talk about players at other clubs.”

The Hammers are next in action on Wednesday against Norwich before playing Leeds again in the Premier League after beating them 2-0 in the FA Cup over the weekend.
