West Ham United fans here in The Transfer Tavern are hoping for a big winter transfer window, and are hoping that owners David Gold and David Sullivan will dig deep to provide manager David Moyes with the funds he needs to guide the Hammers away from the bottom-three.
Regulars in our fine establishment, we love hosting West Ham fans in a transfer window, and fans grow exceptionally excited and optimistic that their promising side will finally begin to deliver in the Premier League. Today our landlord delivered some good news to the expectant bunch hanging around the pool table, revealing that The Standard had reported that the club are interested in a deal for Newcastle and England midfielder, Jonjo Shelvey.
The former Hammers trainee could be set to return to the club after departing for Charlton as a youngster in 2004, and would be a welcome addition to a midfield that has struggled to protect their backline this season. The club have conceded a monstrous thirty-nine goals in the league so far this season, something that Shelvey would certainly hope to address if Moyes stumps up the funds to release him from his deal in the north east. Should he join the club this month, this would surely constitute West Ham’s dream midfield by the end of the window.
