West Ham United will look to hire a Director of Football as co-owner David Sullivan, who has been directly involved in transfers, will take a step back, as per a report from Ken Dyer of the Evening Standard.
Sullivan has apparently held talks with fellow co-owner David Gold and vice-chairman Karren Brady and the trio have agreed that they will bring in an experienced director to deal with the club’s recruitment strategy.
West Ham supporters have a lot of issues with their current owners and transfers are high on that list. Whilst they’ve singed some decent players under the current owners, the Hammers have also made some huge errors in the transfer market and they’ll hope that hiring somebody with experience in the market could help them make better additions to the squad.
According to the report, the Hammers will wait until the end of the season to make a decision on who will fill the role as they want know which division they’ll be playing in before they make a hire.
