West Ham are set to welcome their former target Grant Holt to the club after he left Premier League strugglers Norwich City.

According to ExWHUemployee, Holt who worked in the scouting department at the cash-strapped club, has left them to take up a similar position at the Hammers.

More announcements to the scouting team are expected soon with Rob Newman set to expand his team.

Good move

The Hammers have been criticised for not having too many scouts in their network so this is a step taken in the right direction.

Earlier, it seemed that the board relied on only a handful of people and agents to offer the players and one could see how awful some of those deals turned out to be.

However, since David Moyes has taken over at the helm, things have appeared to be much smoother on the recruitment end.

Newman’s arrival will certainly aid that as he’s a specialist at his trade and we believe he’ll bring talented scouts to the club.

Hopefully, he gets them in time for the January window in case Moyes has eyes on specific players.

It’s clear that he wants to sign a left-sided centre-back and they’re not readily available in today’s market so having someone to scout the right player could be what’s needed for Moyes and Newman to give their OK to the board.
