Moyes sets record straight on late deals

David Moyes says the Hammers will not do any deadline-beating deals on Monday.

The transfer window shuts at 11pm on the 1st of February.

The Hammers, of course, have been active this month, unlike a number of other clubs, with the young defender Frederik Alves arriving alongside Jesse Lingard; the latter coming in on loan.

There have been plenty of links with strikers and potential forward signings but Moyes has now made it clear that he is likely to stick with what he’s got until the summer!

Speaking after the 3-1 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday, Moyes was asked about potential transfer business and said, per Jack Rosser of the London Evening Standard: “I don’t think we’ll be active at all.

“I think we’ve done our business.”

Lingard was not able to play against Liverpool on Sunday and could instead make his debut in midweek against Aston Villa.

Alves has been signed primarily for the youth teams, though he will be hoping to make an impression throughout the season.

  1. This will come back to haunt us I’m sure …even if Antonio stays fit ,its to many games or if it’s not working in a game like today we have no plan b ..I fkn give up ..way to sabotage our own season..what a crying shame it really is …time for a break me thinks……

  2. Have to smile when you think of all the names we’ve been linked with over this window. The millions that have been offered, the loan deals that were in the pipeline, the wonderkids that were on there way. Not sure if this is the work of agents promoting their clients or the fans being fed crap by the board to keep us quiet.

    • i don’t think the board think or care what you (or i) say. i don’t believe they give you a thought. what a waste of energy they would see it as, putting all that time into constructing possible deals just to keep you happy or to fool you. Trumpian theories abound everywhere

  3. I can’t believe that we was looking for a striker to help out Haller and Antonio as we all know he is injury prone at stages through out the season and only had Haller as our other striker and to then sell Haller and not even replace him let alone a third striker is Suicidal And going to derail our season. Moyes is talking about Yamalenko playing up front as cover and he can’t even make the team in he’s own position and even left out the squad .on a few occasions.
    Don’t tell me that all those names and strikers we have been linked with and we can’t get one better then Yamo as back up to Antonio it’s Crazy ! Complete stupid situation. This will come back to bite us in the arse guaranteed
