‘Serious bargain’, ‘Why fume over this?’ – West Ham fans on Twitter encouraged by latest transfer rumour

The resident Hammers in the Transfer Tavern are enjoying life under David Moyes since he took charge from Slaven Bilic in early November.

West Ham United have been resurgent under the leadership of Moyes in recent weeks, although they still find themselves in the midst of a relegation scrap after 20 fixtures. But the signs are encouraging for the Hammers faithful propping up the bar, who firmly believe that their side have demonstrated a noticeable improvement since the club made the unpopular decision to appoint Moyes on a short-term contract.

The Irons final fixture of 2017 is an away match against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley – a ground where they have already recorded victory this year in a 4th round Carabao Cup tie.

Now that Moyes has had plenty of time to assess the capabilities of his squad, he will be well placed to identify the areas which are most in need of improvement in the January transfer window.

And according to ESPN, Moyes is in the market for a central defender next month, with Swansea City’s Alfie Mawson firmly on his radar.

The rumours have certainly not managed to inspire the entirety of West Ham’s fan base on Twitter so far, but there are plenty of voices of support in Claret and Blue who are strongly advocating a move for Mawson next month.

Here’s what the West Ham supporters had to say about their club’s links with Mawson…
