Reliable West Ham United insider ExWHUemployee delivered a hopeful transfer update overnight.

West Ham’s relegation worries deepened this week with the dismal 4-1 defeat to Leicester City.

The 17th placed Hammers are only being kept out of the bottom three on goal difference.

And David Moyes faces a daunting run of fixtures too.

As a result pressure on West Ham to bring in new signings has intensified.

West Ham under pressure to sign players

West Ham left themselves short both in terms of quality and depth with a meagre £25million net spend in the summer.

Fans have been protesting against co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold.

And supporters are demanding the club acts in the transfer window to give Moyes a realistic chance of keeping the East Londoners up.

West Ham’s only business thus far has been the re-signing of back-up goalkeeper Darren Randolph.


The club continues to be linked with a host of players in the media. But Moyes has admitted he may not be able to sign anyone this month (Football London).

Linked with plenty, but can West Ham deliver?

West Ham have been linked with French midfielder Steven N’Zonzi (The Daily Mail) and AC Milan powerhouse Franck Kessie (Evening Standard) this week.

It remains to be seen whether the Hammers can get any deals over the line.

But Moyes needs fresh blood to breathe new life into West Ham’s torrid season.
