West Ham’s board may have made it clear they will not step aside from the club despite the fan’s controversial protests at the London Stadium this week but it seems some of their frustrations are set to be put to rest.

The Evening Standard states that David Sullivan has decided to step back from the transfer aspects of the club and will seek to appoint a Director of Football this summer, which will hopefully lead to improvements in recruitment.

West Ham’s transfer policy during the past two seasons has been widely criticised by fans and sections of the media, especially with a number of failed pursuits and arrivals who have struggled at the London Stadium, but this change could lead to improvements.

Sullivan has played a central part in this process recently but will hand the responsibility over to a more experienced figure, something which David Gold and Karen Brady have both agreed to, although a final decision will not be made until David Moyes’ future is resolved.

The Scottish manager signed a short-term deal until the end of the season when he was appointed earlier this season but is expected to put pen to paper on a new agreement this summer.
