After what was a frustrating transfer window and on the back of the Tony Henry scandal, it appears that West Ham United are set to alter, drastically, their approach to the transfer market.

Ahead of the 2-0 win over Watford, on Saturday, David Sullivan, via the clubs official site but also reported by the Evening Standard, has remarked,

“Only the manager can sign players.

“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.

“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.”

Excuse me for being churlish but isn`t what they`re about to adopt simply common sense?

Talk about re-inventing the wheel!
