Speaking before West Ham United’s 2-1 victory away to Leeds United on Friday night in a press conference, Irons boss David Moyes appeared to drop a cryptic two-word hint surrounding the club and their January transfer window – with the Scotsman refusing to rule out ‘new faces‘.
Moyes, who has guided the Hammers to fifth in the Premier League table so far, winning four out of their last five matches, is always looking to strengthen his side in any way possible – speaking candidly to the press about improving little by little.
Which striker should West Ham sign in January?
Moyes drops subtle January hint
Having to take ‘small steps’, Moyes appeared to be grounded when talking about the club’s currently brilliant run of form before they added to their impressive last few games with three points against Leeds.
As the winter transfer window nears, with the approval to instigate marquee mid-season deals just a mere few weeks away, Moyes has now dropped a subtle hint that the Hammers could indeed be active in January.
“We have to take small steps, don it layer on layer, continue to make progress.” the manager explained.
“We have done and I am regularly looking to see how we can get this better again, whether it is new faces, the way we play, formation, I am always looking to add to it.”
Transfer Tavern take
Subtlety explaining that he is considering ‘new faces’, this could be an indication that West Ham have one eye on the transfer market as Moyes looks to continue their impressive streak past 2020.
The priority position appears to be a new forward as the Irons are continually linked with a plethora of attackers.
Whether or not the club do land a striker remains to be seen, but you wouldn’t rule it out after this cryptic hint.
