West Ham frustrated with slow transfer business

West Ham are frustrated with their slow progress in the current summer transfer market.

Part of that frustration is related to Hammers being quoted crazy prices with rival clubs knowing West Ham has the proceeds of the £105m sale of Declan Rice but there does appear to be a general price increase of good players this summer like last summer inflation.

West Ham are tracking up to twenty players in total they are interested in but only plan to add two or three additions unless there are further departures.

The addition of a technical director Tim Steinden has added a new stakeholder and perspective, and this potentially causes some internal conflict for another reason to agree on transfers.

6foot2 understands David Moyes does not have a final right of veto but does have a vote in a defacto transfer committee of senior stakeholders.

All incoming transfers will be by mutual agreement, but 6foot2 understands that the majority of votes will decide, so it is possible tin theory that a single individual stakeholder can be outvoted,
