West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady has told BBC Sport that it is the club’s ambition to win the Premier League.

This season is set to be a big one for the Hammers, it being their first at the London Stadium after leaving the Boleyn Ground at the end of last season.

They are hoping that the move to their new ground and the increased revenue it provides, is the first step to them being able to compete both domestically and in Europe.

Indeed, they have already shown their intent to compete by splashing the cash in this summer transfer window with the big-money signing of Andre Ayew from Swansea City.

And Brady says signings like that are being made to aid their aim of winning the Premier League in future.

“It’s our ambition to win the league. That’s what we’re here for,” she told BBC Sport.

“Everything that we achieve is done by the players on the pitch. You can have the best stadium in the world, but if you don’t have the best team then you haven’t done your job properly”.

It now remains to be seen what kind of season that West Ham can have after impressing under Slaven Bilic last year.

Much is likely to rest on how they adapt to playing in their new stadium, with it sure to be a vastly different experience to Upton Park.
