Former Premier League midfielder Carlton Palmer has been speaking to Transfer Tavern about West Ham United’s transfer budget.
This is in contrast to club insider ExWHUemployee, who claims that the Hammers will have £60m plus player sales to spend, but Palmer thinks it could be half that figure.
He said: “I know that there’s not going to be, and David knows that there’s not going to be [a lot to spend].
“I would think that David might have £30m, £35m to spend in the summer, so he’s not going to have a lot of money. He knows that.”
Do you think West Ham will have this little to spend?
No, we have to have more
Yes, that sounds about right
TIF Thoughts on Palmer’s claims…
If what Palmer says is true, you would think the Hammers would spend most of their budget on Jesse Lingard.
This could allow the Hammers to significantly strengthen in a number of areas, so it remains to be seen what budget David Moyes will be given, but if Palmer is right, then West Ham could be in for a tough summer.
