West Ham boss David Moyes will have just £40 million to spend on new players in the summer, according to a report from Sky Sports, and some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.

The east London outfit have the threat of relegation hanging over their heads at the moment.

David Moyes’s men are sitting in 16th spot in the Premier League table. But they are only two points clear of 19th placed Aston Villa, having played a game more than Dean Smith’s side.

The Scot has already spent a fair amount since returning to the London Stadium.

West Ham signed Jarrod Bowen from Hull for £22 million (The Guardian), Darren Randolph for £4 million from Middlesbrough (Daily Mail), and Tomas Soucek on loan from Slavia Prague for a £3.5 million loan fee (The Guardian).

The Hammers have the option to make the Czech’s deal a permanent one, if they avoid the drop for a further £13.5 million (The Guardian).

If West Ham avoid relegation, however, surely the board should be giving Moyes at least double the reported £40 million budget. That’s if they have real ambition to push the club forward of course. And that is highly debatable.
