Report: Hammers’ transfer deadline

West Ham boss David Moyes wants to sign a defender before the club’s second game of the season against Arsenal.

Football.London reports that the Hammers chief is desperate to sign a left-back while he is also keen to acquire a new central defender as the transfer window goes on.

The Hammers have yet to sign a defender this summer, but CandH understands it is an area of priority.

The club are set to sanction the sale of Grady Diangana in this window, allowing him to move to West Brom for a fee of around £18m, and that money will be reinvested as the club look to strengthen the squad.

Moyes has reportedly told the club that a new signing in defence is needed in the next few weeks, with the Hammers to play Arsenal on September 20th.

It appears that game could end up being the debut of a new defender if Moyes has his way; there’s nothing like a gentle start.

  1. Any properly run club would be getting their priority signing in a few weeks before the season started
    But of course we are a million miles away from a properly run club

  2. Gutted about Diangana – can’t understand it at all – would’ve much preferred to keep one-of-our-own and have sold the underperforming Anderson. That said, I loved Anderson’s first season, so I hope we get that player back and I’m proved wrong.

  3. Just read an article on Claret and Hugh published in late March highlighting Moyes strategy of building the team around Diangana,Wilshere and Cullen.Well that one has been blown out of the water for starters.

  4. Let’s hope he gets at least 1 quality defender before the 1st game. We should not be hanging around to buy the right I emphasise the right defenders. Not some has been or unproven cheap buy.
