David Moyes will be in for shock after West Ham safety

David Moyes has told reporters that until Premier League safety is assured, moves in the transfer market cannot be pursued too actively, with West Ham yet to know for certain which league they will be playing in.

“It does. It stops you from getting plans in place as much as you’d like because we’ve still got to get that win we’re talking about that would make sure we’re a Premier League club,” said Moyes.

“It holds you back a little bit from going and getting on with things and making the next part of the decisions which you have to do.”

But David Moyes is in for a shock even when Premier League status is confirmed as the board has little trust in the head of recruitment and the manager in identifying transfer targets after a poor return on their investment over the past two years.

This is likely to lead to a major showdown over control over transfer funds with the board taking a far more active role in the identification and approval of any future signings.

  1. The board’s active roll identifying & approval in past seasons didn’t go too well did it?
    The Sullivan’s intervention was the trouble as I remember.
