Romano: Hammers face busy January transfer blitz

Romano: Hammers face busy January transfer window

Football ITK Fabrizio Romano has stated that West Ham will be busy in the January transfer window, although he has fallen short of naming players.

The Italian football journalist has close links to Hammers director of football Tim Steidten and was at the forefront of West Ham transfer news during the summer. Speaking in his column, Romano said, “I expect West Ham to be busy in January as they’re looking at opportunities around, though it’s still too early to say anything about specific names. Nothing is advanced, but the owners and directors are working on it.”

This is in stark contrast to what Claret and Hugh have been told from sources within the club. As recently as two weeks ago, we were informed that West Ham would only be looking to bring on a striker during the January window. We were also told that the signing would most likely be a loan deal rather than an expensive transfer.

With manager David Moyes unwilling to rotate and fully use his squad, there appears to be a pressing need for more than just one signing, so hopefully, Romano is correct.

  1. Morning Gonzo, no doubt the rumour mill will imminently kick in to full speed and claim that we are to sign every known and unknown player from the British Isles to Outer Mongolia. It’s a concern if Moyes is being given any say in this as he already has players that should have been integrated into the first time thus allowing others to rest. However, with his stubborn stance of continuing to use the same individuals without any consideration for their welfare, it will not matter whether we sign 1,2,3,4 or 10 new players. Moyes will, as per usual, state that they need time to adjust to the demands of the PL and therefore, stick with the usual selection. Déjà vu
