Hammers boss reiterates recruitment stance.
West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed that the club will have to sell before they are able to buy before the transfer window closes in just over a week, Sky Sports reports.
The club’s co-ownder David Gold confirmed last week that there would be no sanctions to bring in new faces to the club until some already there had been sold.
Allardyce has already spent some £25million this summer and has reached the ceiling in terms of squad salary.
Reports close to the club have suggested that they are hoping to make at least one more move before the end of the window with the club still short on strikers, however, Allardyce has intimated that he is happy with what he already has.
“I’ve got no money left,” he said.
“That’s it. If we wanted to bring a new player in, we would have to sell some players.
“But I’m not looking to do that because I’m happy with the squad I’ve got.
“I’m not panicking because we’ve done all our business as quick as we possibly can.”
The club’s current lack of attacking options should be boosted by the return of summer signing Andy Carroll, who is close to shaking off a heel injury that kept him sidelined for the opening game of the season against Cardiff last weekend.
“Over the next few days, I expect him to step up training,” added Allardyce.
