West Ham United insider @ExWHUemployee has dropped a claim about West Ham owners, David Gold, David Sullivan and Karren Brady’s (GSB’s) plan on how Sebastien Haller’s transfer fee will be reinvested.
This comes after manager David Moyes recently revealed that the Ivorian’s January departure from the east London club was not planned, suggesting that the Irons felt Ajax’s offer was too good to turn down, which indicates that the £20.2m transfer fee they’re receiving for Haller, per Sky Sports, was unexpected.
How will West Ham United use this money?
One Irons fan sent insider ExWHUemployee a tweet, asking him what the club has done with the £18m transfer fee they received for Grady Diangana from West Bromwich Albion in the summer transfer window, and what will happen with Haller’s transfer fee, with that West Ham supporter sharing some concern that GSB will not reinvest the money in the squad.
However, the Irons insider responded to that fan saying: ‘I think some will go towards a forward. I would be surprised if we don’t sign anyone,’ which may put the concerns of some fans, like this one, at ease to some extent about GSB not reinvesting the transfer fee into the playing squad at all.
Transfer Tavern take
So, if what ExWHUemployee said is to be believed, then it seems like Irons supporters should expect at least one attacking reinforcement to be added to Moyes’ first-team squad this month.
Will West Ham sign anyone this month?
With names such as Eddie Nketiah and Josh King having already been linked with a move to the London Stadium following Haller’s departure, it will be interesting to see who West Ham ultimately end up signing and how much of the £20.2m transfer fee goes towards signing his replacement.
