Ex-PLO names one player West Ham’s Steidten is trying to sign….

Everton’s former chief Keith Wyness has claimed West Ham transfer chief Tim Steidten will have to wait for a new manager’s “blessing” before pressing ahead with his transfer plans.

Speaking on the new edition of Football Insider’s Inside Track podcast, the 66-year-old – who served as CEO at Goodison Park between 2004 and 2009 and now runs a football consultancy advising elite clubs – claimed a foreign manager’s arrival could disrupt plans to sign multiple home-grown stars.

Football Insider revealed on Monday (29 April) that West Ham are plotting four to six new signings in the summer window – with a particular focus on the domestic market.

It is believed Steidten has drawn up a list of targets – but will need to make sure the Irons have eight home-grown stars in their 25-man squad as the likes of Michail Antonio, Ben Johnson and Aaron Cresswell prepare to leave.

He is also set to search for a new manager, with Football Insider revealed last week (24 April) that David Moyes has privately informed friends that he expects to leave at the end of the season.
