West Ham are set to come into a lot of money when they move into the Olympic Stadium.

The Hammers are moving to the Olympic Stadium for the start of next season, and are set to benefit financially, and Tony Cottee has told Kicca that West Ham need to ensure they spend the money correctly to continue their progression into a top Premier League team.

Cottee said: “It’s really important for West Ham to go into the Olympic Stadium and try and kick on. Obviously once you get there the money’s got to be spent correctly. When you get all the sponsorship and commercial money come in it’s important to spend that wisely.”

West Ham are set to become a very profitable club when they move to the Olympic Stadium, and it appears as if the club have already started planning for this situation.

They spent wisely in the summer just gone, bringing in a group of talented players without breaking the bank, ensuring that they had the best chance on the field of play to establish themselves in the top flight.

So far their season has gone better than many expected, with Slaven Bilic’s team pushing for European qualification, but to make the most of their stadium move the Hammers have to ensure they keep improving.

Their squad needs to be improved further, but done in a manner which does not strain their means, and there West Ham board need to not be tempted into spending more highly just because they can.

They have shown they can build a successful team on their current budget, and although the Hammers can look to spend more next season, they should continue with the policy they have shown this term.
