Sources: West Ham agree two new deals and third on the cards as Newman overhaul intensifies
The off-pitch West Ham overhaul is gathering pace with two new hires agreed and a third on the cards, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The east Londoners have made huge strides on the field under David Moyes and are also completely restructuring their recruitment set-up.
A West Ham source has told Football Insider that deals have been agreed for Moyes’ son, David Moyes junior, and former QPR and Sheffield United defender Georges Santos to join their recruitment team.
Moyes jnr has joined as a scout from Wasserman and Santos, 51, is set to be a European scout.
The ex-defender, who spent most of his playing career in England, is joining West Ham from Marseille and is based in France.
This site broke the news last Saturday (6 November) that the Londoners have also opened talks with Peterborough assistant manager Mark Robson about becoming their new Under-23s manager.

The former Irons midfielder, 52, has been lined up to replace Dmitri Halajko.
The three deals, with two of them already agreed, demonstrate the growing influence of recently-appointed head of recruitment Rob Newman.
The club announced his arrival on 1 October as a significant move in a major shake-up behind the scenes.
West Ham have made it a priority since securing Moyes senior to a new contract during the summer to modernise and strengthen their recruitment team.
Football Insider first broke the news that Newman was set to join the Hammers on 7 July, before he embarked on a period of gardening leave at former club Man City.
