West Ham United are virtually safe from Premier League relegation after beating Watford 3-1 at home on Friday night.

David Moyes has done it again, keeping West Ham in the Premier League – two years since doing it the first time around.

The Scot will now look to plan for next season, and he may well have been on something of a transfer mission on Saturday.

As spotted by Louis Mendez of South London Press, Moyes watched on as Charlton Athletic drew 2-2 with Wigan Athletic on Saturday afternoon.

The first thought may be on Josh Cullen. The West Ham midfielder is on loan at Charlton and played the full 90 minutes against Wigan, so Moyes may have been assessing his performance.

Yet on the other side, Wigan named two West Ham targets in their starting line-up as Antonee Robinson and Cedric Kipre both played.

Earlier this month, The Guardian reported that West Ham are keen to bring in Robinson, eyeing up a bargain raid on the cash-strapped Latics.

Just days ago, The Daily Mail reported that West Ham had made their first approach for centre back Kipre, with a quick deal wanted for the giant defender.

It’s more than reasonable to think Moyes was watching the game to check on both players, so how did they fare?

Kipre picked up a yellow card, but also racked up five clearances, five aerials won, two interceptions and one blocked shot.

Left back Robinson recorded an assist as his outstanding speed and attacking play were on show again, whilst he also notched a tackle, an interception and two clearances.

Both players are young and full of potential, and certainly didn’t disgrace themselves in front of Moyes yesterday. Maybe, just maybe, Moyes will be their manager next season.
