West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan says that the Hammers are going to rework their approach towards transfers.
The London Evening Standard reports that West Ham will completely change their recruitment plan after growing concern from supporters.
Sullivan, who was speaking on the club’s official website, explained the process.
Going forward, we are going to completely re-jig it, I am going to delegate the whole thing to a huge new analysis system and a new head of recruitment, massive video analysis department, increase the scouting.
Sullivan hopes that the club can be more efficient with their money going forward.
Every player will be looked at five or six times, we won’t be signing a player based on who the manager has never seen play; the manager will watch him play and we hope we will spend our money better. We are not going to spend money for the sake of it.
The club has found their name in headlines for the wrong reasons of late, with the former head of recruitment Tony Henry leaving the club for comments he made regarding African players.
There has also been concern about the money spent in recent years, with signings failing to deliver at the club.
The Hammers have had to wait until the second half of the season to see the best from club-record signing Marko Arnautovic, who struggled under Slaven Bilic.
