The cost of three Irons transfers revealed

West Ham has invested over £40m in the three transfer deals they have completed this summer while committing another £35m in wages over the lifetime of their contracts.

Ryan Fredericks was a free agent but we paid a combined total of £4m in signing on bonus and agent fees to land the former Fulham man.

Issa Diop’s transfer fee from Toulouse was £22m with a further £2.2m signing on bonus plus £4.4m of add-ons based on appearances totalling a potential £ 28.6m.

The Lukasz Fabianski  deal officially announced this morning will cost the Hammers around £7.5m based on transfer and agent fees.

On the wages front, the Hammers have invested around £35m of wages over the life of their contracts on those mentioned above.

Wage estimates: Issa Diop £67.5k per week over 5 years = £17.5m. Lukasz Fabianski £50k per week over 3 years = £7.8m. Ryan Fredericks £50k per week over 4 years =£10.4m    Total £35.7m

  1. …which leaves approx £35m, if the reported £75m war-chest is accurate. We can add income from sales to that and we can still seek other free agents such as Balotelli and Wilshere for example.

    Happy days…I think.
