Hurry up Davey, come on

David Moyes says he is looking to conduct his January business as early as possible in order to give West Ham the best chance of escaping the drop zone.

The Hammers fell back to 17th in the Premier League as a result of the defeat against Newcastle and draw at Bournemouth over Christmas, leaving Moyes in no doubt that fresh faces are urgently required.

And the recently-appointed manager hopes to start bringing players in as soon as he possibly can - with the midfield especially set for an overhaul.

"Im in a hurry," he told whufc.com. "I have to be in a hurry because I cannot wait three or four months to see how you do. Ideally Id have had six or seven pre-season games to understand what theyre like, but Ive not.

"Every player has shown great desire and is committed in training, but I think were short in some areas and overloaded in others.

"For example, weve got lots of forwards but were really short of midfield players. Weve got quite a few who are comfortable playing on the left, but not so many who can play on the right so weve got an imbalanced squad.

"Weve got a couple of forwards in form at the minute and people we can bring on and use, so I think weve got a threat, but were definitely lacking in some areas."

Moyes has been in charge of West Ham for 10 matches since succeeding Slaven Bilic at the start of November, winning two, drawing three and losing five games.
