Lomas: Investment is key for West Ham


Former West Ham midfielder Steve Lomas has suggested that investment is key if the club are to realise their ambitions of becoming a top six side.

The Hammers currently lie 10th in the Premier League table, but did spend big last summer on players like Felipe Anderson and Issa Diop.

Speaking on talkSPORT, Lomas argued that that level of spending is vital for the club.

He said: “It seems to be going in the right direction. I think we’re still recovering from when we moved.

“The first three transfer windows we were shopping in Poundland.

“The board and the chairman have realised you’ve got to pay decent money, even to stay in the Premier League, never mind pushing on and trying to finish in that top eight and getting into Europe.”
