We might have to rely on loans, admits Moyes [video]

David Moyes says that he would like to sign a 'couple of players' during the January transfer window - but admits that he may have to rely on loans to see him through.

The Hammers boss, who is contracted to the club for the rest of the season told West Ham's website that he was searching the market with view to players who can make an immediate effect - but also provide value for money for many years to come.

"We would really like a couple of players in the January window but I couldn’t say that we’re guaranteed to do that because we’re not there yet," he said. "But I hope we can.

"I want to make sure we bring in the right players, players who can stay at the club for a while. At the same breath, we could possibly get a couple of loans and see how they do from there.

"My job at the moment is to make sure we stay in the division, but there is also part of me looking at what we need to do for the future and what it’s going to look like for West Ham coming up, even in the close-season.

"It might sound easy, but it’s not easy trying to manage both."

And in terms of what particular players he has an eye on, Moyes revealed that he was seeking players comfortable with the ball at their feet. "At the moment I would like to add a couple of players who will help us keep the ball better and pass better," he added.

"If we got that it would help me feed the centre forwards we’ve got - and we’ve got quite a lot of centre forwards at the club. We want to be able to give them the right type of service and I want people who can recognise what they need.

"We could need people in the centre of midfield or off the side who might do it from another area, or people in different positions, but I want to add a couple of people who could give us a little bit more on the ball."
