David Moyes is ready to give Conor Coventry a big chance with the West Ham United first-team squad next season.
That’s according to club insiders Claret and Hugh who claim that central midfield is an area at the London Stadium where Moyes wants to address in the summer transfer window.
Mark Noble is set to retire at the end of the season whilst Alex Kral will almost certainly be sent back to Spartak Moscow having failed to impress during his loan spell with the Hammers.
Meanwhile, Tomas Soucek’s future at the London Stadium is uncertain according to Claret and Hugh.
It’s clear to see that Moyes needs to sign a top-class central midfielder to help provide more solid competition for Declan Rice. But it seems as though the Scot plans to bolster his ranks by bringing one of our youth players into the fold as well…
David Moyes has big plans for Conor Coventry
The 22-year-old is currently on loan with MK Dons.
Coventry really has thrived with the League One outfit. He left the London Stadium to link up with the Buckinghamshire outfit in January.
The midfielder has played a key role for MK Dons this season since he joined and has been integral to their rise up to third in the League One table.
Claret and Hugh reckon that his fine form since January has impressed Moyes and the West Ham boss is ready to give him a big chance with the first-team next season.
We covered how Moyes has been really impressed by Coventry during his loan spell with MK Dons back in February right here on Hammers News.
It would be great if the Hammers signed an elite central midfielder and promoted Coventry at the same time. We would then have Rice, Soucek, Coventry and another top-class player as options next season.
Whether the West Ham board will be prepared to back Moyes sufficiently in the transfer market remains to be seen though…
