West Ham manager David Moyes has revealed that he expects to receive funding to bolster his squad during the January transfer window.
“They told me when I came that if things were needed in January then it would be possible to do so,” Sky Sports News quotes Moyes as saying. “But I said last week, and I’m saying again that I am focusing on the players here. I have to try and get a team from what we have in the squad.
“We want to get a winning team from what we’ve got and if we are struggling to find that then we might have to find other people who can do that. It will be difficult because I’ve only been here two or three weeks. I do expect the staff that work here and who work it that department [transfers] will have plenty of people to look at and recommend.
“If it gets nearer the time and I think it’s needed I’ll go myself and see them. I see the players here having a strong mentality and a fighting spirit amongst them to make things right. I can only harp back to small things.
“It’s individual lapses that cost us in recent games. I’m focusing on the players here. We have to get a winning team from what we’ve got in the squad.”
The Hammers are currently playing poorly in the League and if they carry on in this fashion, there is a high chance that they will end the season relegated.
It is imperative that the club make reinforcements in January in order to bolster their chances of avoiding the drop.
As the East London club has the worst defensive record of any club in the top flight, they should aim to strengthen their backline.
