Funds will undoubtedly be limited at West Ham once again in January, however. So Moyes will have to be thrifty in his player recruitment.

He is also the league’s top scorer so far this term.

The former Newcastle United hitman is diminutive, a tireless worker and has all of the qualities needed to compete with Michail Antonio and Sebastien Haller for a starting role.

If West Ham could pick up Armstrong for a reasonable fee, it would be an absolute no brainer for us.
