West Ham United boss David Moyes will be looking to strengthen his squad to have any chance of beating the drop this season.

West Ham have recorded their worst ever start to a Premier League season with just 10 points from 15 games and face Chelsea and Arsenal next.

Slaven Bilic was sacked and replaced by David Moyes who has so far failed to turn things around in East London, losing three and drawing one of his first four games in charge.

Many point to transfers as one of the biggest downfalls for Bilic during his West Ham United tenure.

Under Bilic fans were never sure who was making the signings and what the club's transfer policy was.

Indeed the blame for poor signings seemed to rest at the door of Bilic while the owners often took credit for any success stories, like Dimitri Payet.

The Hammers look short all over the pitch after signing just four first team players during the summer.

Supporters no longer trust the club's transfer policy and methods and are sceptical about what January might bring.

But speaking to the club's official website, Moyes has suggested that he will have the final say on players coming in.

"They (Sullivan and David Gold) told me when I came that if things were needed in January it would be possible to do so," Moyes told whufc.com.

“I’ve only been here two or three weeks. To have done all that work, and be prepared, I don’t think anybody could do that (look at potential transfers) in that short time.

"But I do expect the staff that work here and the people in that department will have me plenty of people to look at recommend, and if I think it’s needed nearer the time I’ll go and see them.”
