West Ham in talks over £ 100million loan
According to the print edition of The Sunday Sun (03/14, page 59), West Ham is in talks with US financiers MSD Holdings over a deal that could see the Hammers grant a staggering £ 100million loan.
MSD has previously supported Southampton and Derby financially, while they also played an influential role in the recent Burnley takeover.
It seems they have now set their sights on West Ham. It wouldn’t be the first time the East London club have received help from the banking industry, having used Barclays in the past to create funds. They still have two loans to repay at the bank.
This potential loan offers further good news for David Moyes’ side after a hugely successful 2020/21 campaign. Having been tipped by many to face a relegation battle this quarter, the team have exceeded expectations and are currently in contention for a top-four spot.
Sam Brookes of GIVEMESPORT says …
West Ham has been exceptional in the transfer market lately. Imagine what they could do with £ 100million at their disposal.
Moyes has been at the helm for the last three transfer windows and has made clear improvements to the squad in each one.
Each deal was a triumph, helping the party enter European competition.
With a significant amount of money potentially on the horizon, this represents a golden opportunity for Moyes’ men to establish themselves as a team capable of consistently challenging the ‘big six’.
They can always be on the lookout for great deals because they have used this method so effectively since Moyes returned.
Meanwhile, they may also be on the hunt for one or two big name signings that could take the club to the next level.
