David Gold promises West Ham’s squad will be stronger next season than last

West Ham Upton Park

West Ham will have a stronger squad next season, according to David Gold.

The Hammers co-chairman took to his official Twitter account to assure fans that West Ham’s squad will be stronger in the 2015/16 season than it was in the last campaign, following complaints that they are currently weaker.

So far, the East London outfit have completed two signings, bringing in Darren Randolph on a free transfer, and Pedro Obiang from Sampdoria.

Whilst Randolph will be merely second choice goalkeeper to the talented Adrian, Obiang is undoubtedly a first-team player, and is a statement of intent that the club plan on bringing in real quality.

However, following some key losses from the playing squad - Carl Jenkinson and Alex Song - it could be stated that they are currently weaker.

However, the Mail believe that the Hammers are still preparing a permanent move for Song, whilst Jenkinson is still a potential loan target, according to the same media source.

The likes of Dimitri Payet and Diego Perotti have been linked with moves, also as per the Mail, and it is clear that the East London club are planning to see through Gold’s promise that the playing squad next season will be far improved from the one seen last term.
