West Ham could earn up to £8 million extra than what was budgeted for at the start of the season by the club’s owners with a sixth placed finish in the Premier League table.
That’s according to Claret and Hugh who claim that GSB planned for around £120 million to be coming their way from Sky TV money.
David Sullivan and David Gold allegedly budgeted for the Hammers to finish in 10th spot in the Premier League table.
That in itself is a sign of their lack of ambition, or perhaps they were just being ultra sensible.
Either way, it seems as though the West Ham owners, and David Moyes, could be in for a very nice surprise this summer.
The Hammers’ recent success on the pitch is obviously translating very well off of it too.
West Ham Premier League table finish could yield rich rewards
Should the West Ham finish in sixth place in the Premier League table this season, we will earn an extra £8 million that what Sullivan and Gold originally budgeted for.
Each extra placed is worth another £2 million according to Claret and Hugh.
So a fourth placed finish would see us earn an extra £12 million whilst fifth would bring in an extra £10 million.
Even if West Ham finish in seventh in the Premier League table, GSB would get another £6 million on top of the £120 million they budgeted for.
This will come as very good news for Hammers boss David Moyes with the Scot in need of bringing a lot of new players into the London Stadium this summer.
Moyes has to sign a striker, a centre-back, a left-back and a couple of central midfielders at the bare minimum. The summer transfer window will be a great indication of the owners real ambition and it will show us whether Daniel Kretinsky has grand plans to take us forward as a football club.
Will we finally see the colour of the Czech’s money? West Ham’s earnings from Sky TV money, and the fact that we didn’t spend a penny in the January transfer window, should set us up for an extremely busy summer window.
Much will depend on whether Sullivan, Gold and Kretinsky actually back Moyes to the hilt this time though.
