Tim Steidten is very frustrated that West Ham are not pushing ahead with a deal to sign Youssouf Fofana from Monaco.
I think that Fofana would be the perfect signing for West Ham this summer, with Declan Rice having left. Steidten obviously agrees with that notion but unfortunately for us, Moyes doesn’t…

The Guardian’s Jacob Steinberg claims that Moyes and Steidten are on completely different pages when it comes to transfer strategy.
The Scot wants to sign proven Premier League players whilst the 44-year-old is keen to explore the European market for cheaper, unpolished gems.
I’m just not sure what’s going on at the London Stadium. A toxic melting pot including five completely different strategies bourn from differing views is bubbling away in background.
Steidten, Moyes, Mark Noble, David Sullivan and Rob Newman all have input. The saying ‘too many cooks spoil the broth’ springs to mind.
II don’t really see what the point was in appointing Tim Steidten as West Ham’s director of football, if the German’s suggestions are just going to be ignored by Moyes.
Something has to change…and fast. The sad thing is that someone will probably have to walk in order to make things work. Whether that be Moyes or Steidten remains to be seen though.
