West Ham United manager David Moyes has expressed his disappointment after the club failed to secure any new signings on transfer deadline day. Despite their efforts, West Ham was unable to complete a deal for Luton Town defender James Justin.
Moyes had been keen to bolster his squad during the January transfer window, but the Hammers were unable to bring in any new players before the deadline. The club had reportedly made a bid for Justin, but Luton rejected the offer.
Speaking about the failed transfer, Moyes said, “We tried to get a couple of things done, but it just didn’t quite work out for us. We made an offer for James Justin, but Luton decided not to sell him.”
The West Ham manager also admitted that the lack of signings could impact the team’s performance in the second half of the season. “We’re disappointed that we couldn’t add to the squad, as we felt it was important to strengthen in certain areas,” Moyes added.
Despite the setback, Moyes remains optimistic about his current squad and believes they can still achieve their goals this season. “We have a good group of players here, and we will continue to work hard and push for positive results,” he said.
West Ham currently sits in 16th place in the Premier League table, just one point above the relegation zone. The club will now have to rely on their existing players to help secure their top-flight status for next season.
