West Ham 'don't have a penny' for new players

David Sullivan says West Ham “don’t have a penny to spend on wages” for new players in the January transfer window.

The Hammers have failed to build on a strong start to the Premier League season, as injuries to Dimitri Payet, Enner Valencia, Diafra Sakho, Manuel Lanzini and Andy Carroll have limited their potency in front of goal.

West Ham recorded away wins at Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City in August and September, but have netted just two goals in their last five games, and are without a win since the 2-1 win over champions Chelsea at Upton Park on 24 October.

However, the club’s co-chairman warned manager Slaven Bilic that there is no wriggle-room in the playing budget to bring in additional signings in January.

“Unless somebody leaves the club who is on our wage bill at this moment in time we don’t have a penny to spend on wages,” he told Sky Sports.

“We would only let fringe players go, or if somebody made an offer we couldn’t refuse. We’re not going to be selling players for £10 million, £20 million. We’re a non-selling club.”
