Hammers assistant coach Kevin Nolan has dropped an encouraging transfer claim about David Moyes and West Ham’s owners.
Moyes is slap bang in the middle of a sizeable rebuild at West Ham this summer.
The Hammers completed their third signing for the first team this week with a refreshingly quick and efficient swoop to seal a £12m deal for Swansea’s West Ham-supporting midfielder Flynn Downes.
The arrival took Moyes’s summer spend past the £50m mark after the signings of £30m Nayef Aguerd and £10m Alphonse Areola.
Another three or four signings – at least – are expected to arrive before the transfer window slams shut on September 1st.
A striker and attacking wide forward are also on the agenda for West Ham as well as another central midfielder and left-back.
As most West Ham fans will be well aware, Moyes plays his cards very close to his chest when it comes to pretty much everything – especially transfers.
The Scot provided a rare transfer update for West Ham fans on Friday, admitting the pressure is on to get deals done.
The West Ham boss has also been at pains to state that he wants to do his due diligence on every signing to get more right than not.
And he is well aware Hammers fans won’t accept ‘any Tom, Dick or Harry’.
West Ham fans went into the summer in expectant mood. And thus far the club has not disappointed.
The jury is still out on the summer window, though. And opinion will revolve heavily around the quality of the striker West Ham will surely sign.
Hammers supporters want to see West Ham co-owners David Sullivan, Daniel Kretinsky and David Gold back Moyes by signing the players he wants.
One man who knows what it takes to be a success as a much hyped West Ham signing with a weight of expectation on their shoulders is Moyes’ assistant and ex Hammers skipper Nolan.
And Nolan has dropped an encouraging transfer claim about Moyes and West Ham’s owners.

“Look, it’s nice (that we’ve made quality signings) and the Gaffer is working hard with the owners to add to that group which is really good,” Nolan told whufc.com.
“So, for us, what we’ve got to do is keep working and keep producing what the Gaffer wants us to do and working those boys really hard.”
