West Ham tipped to complete multiple 'big-name' signings in January after confirmed news - Kenny
West Ham could complete a “couple of big-name” signings in January after Daniel Kretinsky’s reported £150million investment.
So says ex-Premier League goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after the takeover news was confirmed on 10 November.
The Czech billionaire has acquired a 27 per cent stake in the Hammers for a fee in the region of £150m, as reported by The Sun on the day of the deal.
It is widely reported that the partial buyout will lead to a full takeover after a profit limitation clause at the London Stadium expires in 2023.
David Moyes’ side are obliterating expectations in 2021-22 and are currently perched in 3rd place in the Premier League after 11 matches.
Kenny urged the decision-makers at the London Stadium to capitalise on their position and lure more top talent in the January window.

“You’ve got to strike while the iron is hot,” he told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.
“They might not have as good a chance as this of making the top four for a while. It’s incredible what they’re doing.
“But it’s always more difficult in January. There is always less movement and players don’t seem to want to switch clubs halfway through a season.
“But if they can get the right players lined up, I think they will splash the cash and get a couple of big names in, in January. They’ve got the money now and I can see it happening.
“It’s important they don’t rest on their laurels. You’ve got to keep trying to improve that squad and keep making progress.”
