Reliable West Ham United insider ExWHUemployee has teased that a new arrival is imminent.
West Ham fans are on a high this morning after David Moyes’s side sealed their best ever Premier League points total and group stage Europa League football for the first time after beating Southampton 3-0 in Sunday’s season finale.
Now all eyes will be on West Ham improving their squad.
Attentions turn to transfers for miracle worker Moyes after record-breaking season
Moyes has worked a minor miracle getting West Ham into Europe given his lack of options in several key areas.
With a truncated summer for transfer business due to the European Championships, getting any deals done early will be key.
And West Ham look set to do just that according to ExWHUemployee.
Moyes has stated a number of times that he wants to build a side around young, hungry players.
And Ex says he will provide an update today on a new signing the club is making, hinting it will be a promising young star.
Insider teases imminent new signing
Ex hinted at an imminent announcement when speaking on Twitter on Sunday.
And he said while it may not be hugely exciting news to some, it is a start and a highly rated Under 23 player.
“It’s not majorly exciting but it’s a start,” ExWHUemployee said when asked about the signing announcement due to be made on his latest West Ham Way podcast.
“Yes mate (it is an under 23 player) but one that is meant to be highly rated.”
Fans think new arrival announcement may be young Chelsea defender
Several fans the announcement could be of the signing of Chelsea centre-back Pierre Ekwah Elimby. Ex revealed West Ham had the 19-year-old on trial last month with a view to signing him (West Ham Way podcast).
The French youth international was signed from Nantes by the Blues.
But he has been rarely used in Chelsea’s development side and now West Ham could sign him after bringing the left-sided centre back across London for a closer look.
Whether it is Elimby or another promising young star it shows West Ham will continue to follow Moyes’s recruitment policy.
And that can only bode well for the future.
