I have money to spend, insists Moyes

David Moyes says he is being backed financially by West Ham's Board - but insists he just hasn't found the right players to invest in.

However Moyes, speaking ahead of tomorrow night's Premier Legaue meeting with Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace admitted that he was having trouble spending the money.

"Theyíve given us the funds for the right players that are available," Moyes told the media. "But Itís difficult to get the right players. Thereís not been loads of transfers and, if there have been, theyíve been extremely expensive ones.

"The priority is to add good players to your squad. What you donít want to do is add players who actually are just going to make the numbers up.

"Ultimately, weíre short of players right now and we could do with adding, but Iím not going to bring people here who I donít think are going to make a difference to the team. Itís a waste of money and a waste of time as well."

And despite claiming that he has a sizeable transfer warchest to utilise, Moyes let it slip that he may be eyeing the loan system - rather than seeking to purchase players on a permanent basis in order to solve West Ham's chronic ssquad shortages.

"We want to bring people in who can someway contribute between now and the end of the season, if not longer," he added. West Ham's only addition during the January transfer window thus far has been midfielder Joao Mario, on loan from Serie A Inter.
