BREAKING NEWS: WEST HAM KEY PLAYER HAS BEEN SUSPENDED BY THE NFL FOR 8MONTHS DUE TO…

West Ham are to push ahead with the appointment of Tim Steidten as their new technical director. The German emerged as the leading candidate last week only for doubts to emerge over whether his arrival would be finalised. Insiders had insisted it had a 50% chance of going through last Friday.

However it is understood that the deal is on the verge of being agreed, handing West Ham a boost as they gear up for a busy summer in the transfer window. Steidten, who left Bayer Leverkusen in March, has made a positive impression during several rounds of talks and has met West Ham’s manager, David Moyes, on at least two occasions.

West Ham have been looking to add to their recruitment team after growing dissatisfied with their signings last summer and the appointment of a senior figure will raise doubts over the future of the club’s current head of recruitment, Rob Newman. Paul Mitchell, Lee Dykes, Lee Congerton, Tiago Pinto and Michael Edwards had also been considered for the role by West Ham, but the job is set to go to Steidten. The 44-year-old German held talks with Chelsea last September.
