New West Ham manager David Moyes will be given a transfer budget in the January transfer window, according to the Mirror journalist Darren Lewis.
The former Sunderland boss was only given a six month contract by the Hammers, which could suggest that he would not be given money to spend on players if he was then to leave at the end of the season.
It seems however that the West Ham owners know they may need to spend in order to get themselves out of trouble. The Hammers find themselves in the relegation zone after 11 games played, and are due to play a number of top six teams before January.
They face Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham in December, and it could leave the club in a precarious position near the foot of the table if they don’t get results against Watford, Leicester City and Everton in their next three league games.
