David Moyes drops West Ham’s biggest transfer hint yet after Brighton loss

West Ham United boss David Moyes has dropped a big transfer hint after yesterday’s chaotic performance at Brighton.

The Hammers took the lead late in the first half after Michail Antonio fired home brilliantly from the edge of the box.

The players just didn’t show up in the second half. It was a truly embarrassing performance.

Brighton’s players had more fighting spirit and determination to finish ninth than ours to finish sixth.

Even Crystal Palace did us a favor and beating Manchester United was not enough to motivate players to show up. Pathetic, weak and just not good enough. It’s clear that it wasn’t just fans who felt let down by yesterday’s display…

David Moyes drops big transfer hint

The Scot already knew he had a lot of work to do at the London Stadium during the summer transfer window.

With so many players set to leave this summer, it’s no exaggeration to say that the West Ham manager needs to make at least six top signings before the start of next season.

And Moyes admitted he may well have more work to do in the transfer market than at the start, as quoted via WHUFC.com:

“I’m going to take a break because there’s no way I can continue at the pace we’ve had this year. All in all, if today is to be believed, we need to do a lot more than I originally thought I want to create more memories but I will need it to be way better than that or I won’t be creating many more so players are going to have to go up from the performance of ‘today.

This is truly a bold statement from Moyes.

Mark Noble and Andriy Yarmolenko will definitely not be with us next season. Meanwhile, Darren Randolph, Arthur Masuaku, Ryan Fredericks, Alex Kral, David Martin will most likely also be on the way.

Nor would it be surprising to see Issa Diop sold.

So the scale of the overhaul needed at the London stadium is obvious to everyone. And luckily David Moyes sees it too, after dropping a very clear transfer hint yesterday.
